Expert Tips

To broil kabobs, place on broiler pan; brush with remaining marinade. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.

Purchased teriyaki marinade is a mixture of sugar, pineapple juice, soy sauce, sherry and garlic. It is slightly thicker than teriyaki sauce.

To devein shrimp, first use a sharp pointed knife to slit along the back curve of the shrimp. Pull out the dark vein and rinse the shrimp under cold water. To save time, use a shrimp-veining tool, available in cookware stores or the kitchen department of home stores.
