Tangerine Teriyaki Sauce



From my husband's copy of Steve Raichlan's HOW TO GRILL with minor changes. I have been looking at this recipe for a long time and decided to try it. Wish I hadn't waited so long! Great marinade for steak, chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, salmon, tofu, etc. Orange can replace tangerine if the latter is not in season. We sampled the sauce in meat patties. I added about one third of the sauce to ground beef, shaped into small patties and browned in 1 T. oil. Garnished the patties with scallions, fresh cilantro, black and white sesame seeds.
