Recipe: Teriyaki Skewers

Teriyaki Skewers

Makes 8-10

600g chicken fillets or beef fillet (or 300g of each)

bamboo skewers, soaked in warm water


Teriyaki Marinade

5ml Staffords garlic paste

5ml Staffords ginger paste

30ml oil

30ml brown sugar

30ml mirin

80ml Staffords thick soy sauce

125ml sticky meat or chicken marinade

80ml water


To Serve: Fresh coriander leaves



Mix all of the teriyaki ingredients together in a bowl.

Cut the chicken and/or beef into even-sized strips and place in 2 separate non-metallic bowls. Divide the marinade between the chicken and beef and toss well to coat.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.

Thread the chicken and/or beef onto the soaked and drained skewers.

Preheat a pan or braai and grill the skewers for 2 – 3 minutes, per side, or until cooked through.

Cook the remainder of the marinade for 5 – 10 minutes, in a small pan on the stove, or until it reduces. Baste the cooked skewers with the sauce before serving.

Serve with rice tossed with spring onion & toasted sesame seeds. Top with some fresh coriander leaves before serving.
