Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap: Teriyaki Sauce & A Baked Salmon Dinner

Last night, after running errands, we hurried home for a quick dinner before I went out to a chocolate cafe with friends.  On the way home, we drove past an Asian food restaurant, which enticed us to go home and whip up a homemade Teriyaki Sauce!  

We poured it over a large Alaskan salmon fillet (from my dad’s fishing last summer), which I had pulled out of the freezer earlier to thaw.  I added some pats of butter on top of the fish, and baked it in a glass baking dish at 350 F for 15-20 min.  We served some millet and veggies alongside, and drizzled the extra sauce from the bottom of the pan, over the top.  
Note: I didn’t measure precisely (as usual!), so these are estimated amounts.  

Teriyaki Sauce
1/4 cup Tamari or Soy Sauce
1 Tbl. grated Fresh Ginger (or use some powdered ginger)
1 Tbl. Garlic Powder (or use fresh, minced garlic)
1 Tbl. Dark Brown Unrefined Muscovado Sugar (if you just have “regular cane brown sugar,” add an extra drizzle of molasses as well)
2 tsp. Lime Juice
1/2 tsp. freshly grated Black Pepper
1 tsp. Brown Rice Vinegar
sprinkle of Sesame Seeds, Optional
Whisk all ingredients together well, and pour over your meat and/or veggies.  Enjoy!  
I have found that it is much more frugal to make sauces from scratch, instead of buying bottled sauces.  I especially like to use spices I’ve purchased in bulk, as they are much more economically-priced than buying jars of seasonings.
