“From "Sushi for Whimps" (love this book!) - The author says that while teriyaki is very popular around the world, it's less so in Japan. "Teri" means shine or glaze and "yaki" means grill. Teriyaki works well for marinating, grilling and as a dipping sauce. The cooking time is mostly unattended. I'm not sure exactly how much it yields, but I'm guessing about a cup.”
