I've been making this for about as many years as Japanese steak houses have been around and I had the opportunity to watch how they prepared this. As do these steak houses, I don't use the teriyaki sauce, just the soy sauce, and add a dollop of butter and a squeeze of lemon at the end. Delicious, especially served with some grilled chicken, steak, or shrimp! Read More

Not too impressed with this one. Only thing I did differently was only use 1T teriyaki. Could've added some sesame oil hot chili sesame oil etc but as is kinda bland. I added leftovers to Szechuan Spicy Eggplant Read More

Great recipe, but I made a few changes: (1) Replaced vege oil w/seasame seed oil (2) Sliced the zucchini w/a potato peeler [for a more appealing/professional look] (3) Reduced zucchini cook time from 5 min to 1.5 minutes (4) Served over white jasmine rice. This recipe and these changes made a delicious dinner that even my 2 year old loved. Read More

I took a chance and made something with no ratings at all based on the ingredients, and boy was I happy I did! I'm always looking for a way to make zucchini since I love it so much and this did the trick. It tasted like something out of a Japanese restaurant. I did add several cloves of fresh chopped garlic since I don't make anything especially veggies without it, but the rest kept the same. My teen even liked it. Thankyou and I hope more people try this recipe, it's so worth it. Read More

This is a great basic recipe with lots of possibilities! I used sesame oil and added cubed firm tofu and some diced garlic to the mix. I also added a splash of rice vinegar. That really made the other flavors pop and reminded me of something from a hibachi restaurant. Put this over brown rice and you have a nutritious and filling meal. WONDERFUL! Read More

What a great idea! Make sure you are adding just enough soy sauce though cause it may turn out too salty. In any case taste before you add. Thanks for this fabulous recipe! Read More

This was excellent - Very correct it tastes just like a restaurant entree. I will make again - but use more zucchini and onions because you will want more. Read More

A friend gave my tons of zucchini and I was wanting something different to fix with them. I gave this one as try as I happened to have all the ingredients. Everyone was right this is a keeper! I am taking this one to work tomorrow and give it out. You won't believe how delicous and easy this dish is. As a matter of fact there might not be any left for anyone else excuse me while I get another helping!! Read More

I really enjoyed this as a side to my grilled salmon. My boyfriend was happy too. I added a little sesame oil and plenty of sesame seeds to make sure it got full flavor. i also added shitake mushrooms which were a nice mix. next time i will be sure to cut zucchini even thinner so that it absorbs flavor easily.
