If you’re like me, you’re serious about your sauces! I try to make sure I have a decent variety of go-to sauces and dressings on hand as I believe a good sauce can be the quickest way to transform a dish from blah to wow.

This AIP Teriyaki Sauce is one that can be used on fish, poultry, meat or any protein of choice. Another delicious alternative is to drizzle over roasted veggies! NOTE: Recipe does include ½ teaspoon of toasted sesame oil, which is an optional AIP reintro.
