    This was really good and really fast! I didn't have any garlic powder so I put one minced garlic clove in with the marinade. Wonderful! I will make this again.  -  06 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best recipes are quick but don't taste it - and this qualifies! I used the Kikomann Teriyake Marinade and Saude which is very thin - I wasn't sure how it would work but it was what I had on hand and it was perfect - no need to buy the expensive fancy marinades! I did add the garlic powder to the melted butter to ensure spreadability rather than sprinkle it on later and it was perfect! The teriyaki is enough to add flavor but not scream teriyaki. I would say if you are looking for a recipe that allows the swordfish to shine through with just a hint of flavor, definitely try this one! I am actually thinking this might be an interesting try on chicken breast this weekend too!!  -  19 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was excellent! Didn't have any teriyaki sauce on hand, so I combined soy sauce + 1 tbls. honey + sprinkle of dried ginger instead and it worked great. Also used real butter to baste. Can't wait to make it again.  -  04 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
