As promised the homemade Teriyaki sauce that I made to go with the Shrimp-Daikon Fritters. This recipe doesn't even come close to commerical teriyaki sauce. It's so easy to make. I will never buy Teriyaki sauce again. I used an empty soy sauce bottle to store it -- Just make sure you label & date the bottled sauce.
