Spot Prawns with Teriyaki-Ginger Glaze


The word “teriyaki” is a combination of the Japanese words “teri” meaning “luster” and “yaki” meaning “grill” or “broil.”

In a teriyaki dish, ingredients are cooked over high heat after being marinated in or basted by teriyaki sauce, which gives the luster or shine to the food.

Enjoy the prawns with either a dry white wine (Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay) or red wine (Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon).
