Soy-free, Gluten-free Teriyaki sauce

I love teriyaki chicken rice bowls. Losing our local Love Love Teriyaki from our normal date night venues has been a tragedy. BUT I have managed to replicate a sauce which fills the teriyaki void in my soul and is both soy and gluten free. 

Everything Free Teriyaki Sauce
1 cup Sake (Japanese Wine- kind of)
1 cup Coconut Aminos Seasoning Sauce (soy sauce replacer)
1/2 cup Mirin (Japanese Sweet Wine)
1/4 cup sugar

salt to taste

Combine first ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat for 3 minutes. Taste test. Does it needs more salt, sugar, Mirin? I rarely have to add more Sake. Add a pinch of salt. Taste again and adjust accordingly. 
Allow to simmer for around 15 minutes, until sauce is syrupy.

My husband likes this sauce over jasmine rice, grilled chicken strips from Costco (no additives), and shredded lettuce. I love it with jasmine rice, steamed fresh broccoli and fresh green beans. Yummm!
