Soy Sauce Glaze

Here’s our favorite soy sauce glaze that we like to brush on anything we’ve roasted, torched or seared. It’s thick, glossy, and savory but not too salty. You can adjust it depending on the ratios or even the type of soy sauce you use! Learn more about the soy sauce here or check out our “What the F is this?” Series video below!
