Summer is barbeque season and what better way to mix up the classics than with a cuisine known for its grilling. These flavors are second nature to me, and I find that it is my most requested dish of the season. The marinade is similar to teriyaki, yet with the grated Asian pear, sesame seeds, and fresh herbs it adds another dimension. Try it on a variety of proteins such as chicken, fish, even tofu.
