Soy Vay, Island Teriyaki - The Ultimate Marinade

Soy Vay, Island Teriaki marinade

What do you name a sauce produced by a Chinese girl and a Jewish boy?
Soy Vay, of course!

They took care of a clever name, but is this stuff any good or any better than any other teriyaki marinade? The answer is Hell yes! This has to be one of the best marinades on the market - which is saying a lot because I don't often rave about sauces and such.

Island Teriyaki is versatile stuff. Whether you're marinating some meat over a few hours or just using it while cooking, it tastes great. I've tried it on several kinds of fish (from Salmon to Cod), beef, chicken and vegetables. Add a little bit as you cook veggies and they'll suck a lot less - even the frozen ones.

What's In It?

All Natural Ingredients: Preservative free soy sauce (water, wheat, soybeans, salt), sugar, 100% Hawaiian pineapple juice from concentrate, vinegar, expeller pressed soy oil, sesame seeds, fresh garlic, dried onion, fresh ginger, garlic granules, expeller pressed sesame oil, onion powder, ginger powder.

It's got a lot of calories and sodium... but you only live once and this stuff makes everything taste better - yes, even THAT!

According to their web site, their products "fall into the Indefinite Shelf-Life category, even after opening. For optimum freshness it is best to refrigerate them after opening. If a bottle is accidentally left out overnight, the product will not be harmed in any way."
Let's check those ingredients again and see if we can figure out which combo makes this stuff resilient to overnight exposure. Not the most appetizing aspect, eh? At least they don't use MSG.

There's no excuse for eating bland crappy food. Bland food is a crime, Soy Vay's Island Teriyaki is the cure.

They make a variety of other products, but this is really the only one I'm really stoked about.

All specific technical info was shamelessly stolen from the Soy Vay web site. Bitch at them for any discrepancies or completely incorrect info.
