If you've never made much Korean or Asian cuisine, trying this glaze might be a good way to build up your confidence. Start off with a glaze, then try a Korean-style marinade or salad dressing. From there, you can try making full-on Korean dishes, especially staples such as bulgogi, bibimbap, and short ribs. Once you're able to prepare those dishes, there will be no stopping you.

In the meantime, try this glaze on American or Asian dishes. It works great as a chicken wing glaze. You really can't go wrong with it either way. If you're making the glaze to serve a large number of people, try doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling the recipe. Remember to refrigerate the unused portions of the glaze so they don't go bad. 


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
