The soy sauce can always be replaced by a gluten free soy sauce substitute – Mix 1tbsp treacle or molasses with 2tsp vinegar, 1/8 tsp ground ginger, a clove of crushed garlic and 2 cups of gluten free beef broth. Season with black pepper and salt. Simmer for a few minutes until thickened slightly and you are left with about 1 cup of sauce. Store in a jar in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. This sauce also contains a fraction of the salt you’d find in shop bought soy sauce!

In all cases marinate the meat or fish in a covered dish in the fridge for as least 30 mins for the best flavour.

Mix 1tbsp treacle or molasses with 2tsp vinegar, 1/8 tsp ground ginger, a clove of crushed garlic and 2 cups of gluten free beef broth. Season with black pepper and salt. Simmer for a few minutes until thickened slightly and you are left with about 1 cup of sauce. Store in a jar in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
