How to Make a Sweet Soy Glaze?

This recipe is so easy to come together, I have made this sweet soy glaze from hello fresh many times and this is fail-proof! All you need is to mix all of the ingredients together in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Once the mixture is boiling reduce heat to a simmer and let cook for 30 mins. Once the mixture has reduced slightly, remove from heat and let stand for at least an hour to thicken.

Top your favorite protein on veggies with the glaze and another delicious family meal is done!

What Goes Well With The Glaze?

Sweet Soy Glaze is versatile and can add flavor to various dishes. Its combination of sweet and tangy flavors can be used as a marinade for chicken or beef, creating a delicious entrée that’s sure to please the palate.

Sweet Soy Glaze can also be added to grilled vegetables, which is my families favorite, or used as a topping for fish. Even rice dishes like sushi bowls or stir fry recipes benefit from Sweet Soy Glaze’s unique flavor. I have even drizzled it over Lobster Garlic Noodles, so good!

Sweet Soy Glaze inspired from Hello Fresh provides an easy way to spice up your meals, just like the hello fresh tex mex paste!


How do I make this recipe soy free?

I love to make this recipe with liquid coconut amino’s it taste just like soy sauce, for all of the soy free folks.

What is the difference between hoisin sauce and sweet soy glaze?

Another sauce comes to mind when you think of salty, sweet, and slightly thick: hoisin. But hoisin is thickened with cornstarch, while sweet soy sauce is naturally thick from reducing soy sauce and sugar together

Is sweet soy glaze the same as teriyaki?

While soy sauce is basically a derivative of the soybean with water and salt, teriyaki is slightly more complicated. Teriyaki includes all of the ingredients of soy sauce with brown sugar, ginger, and garlic in addition.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know how to make a delicious and versatile Sweet Soy Glaze, it’s time to get cooking! This glaze is the perfect addition to grilled chicken or salmon, so fire up the barbecue and get grilling.
