This is a family favorite and so simple. I first got the recipe from a friend who was a chef in a Japanese restaurant. When I married my husband he was using the same recipe he got from his Japanese ex-mother-in-law. It is so versatile we have used it for chicken breasts, wings, thighs, salmon, halibut, beef-kabobs - even veggies!
