½ cup soy sauce (I used Kikkoman)

½ cup water

¼ cup Splenda or sugar (or less, depending on how sweet you like it, use Splenda for the South Beach Diet)

1 T brown sugar (optional)

1 T ginger puree or fresh grated ginger root

1 T garlic puree or fresh garlic, finely diced


Put soy sauce, water, Splenda, brown sugar (if using), ginger puree, and garlic puree in small saucepan and simmer about 15 minutes, until reduced by about 1/3 to 1/2.
