This 5-ingredient teriyaki sauce is so much better than anything you’ll find in the supermarket, and it only takes a few minutes to prep. Make a double batch to use on chicken or fish. It will keep in your fridge for up to 2 months.

Jasmine rice sprinkled with thinly sliced scallion and 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds (1/2 cup of rice per serving will up the SmartPoints by 3) is great on the side.
