White soy has been limited to Japan for many centuries. Yes, it is traditional but new! Daily Eats recently tried White Tamari white soy sauce.
White soy sauce is made from a specific ratio of wheat and soy beans using a proprietary fermentation process. White soy sauce has more wheat and less soy beans. The wheat is steamed and soy beans roasted. The fermentation process is similar to the dark soy sauce process.
White Soy Sauce Food Company sent us some samples and recipes. We gave White Tamari a try. We grilled chicken breasts marinated in White Soy Sauce. It great tasted, lighter than the dark soy, but not overwhelming like dark soy sauces can be.
Here’s the recipe we tried:
White Soy Sauce Chicken Marinate Sauce
White Tamari 1 cup
White Wine 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Chicken breast 4
Marinate chicken for 10-15 minutes.
Roast marinated chicken in 425 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes. We actually grilled the soy marinated chicken on the Char-Broil.
Prepare the gravy by adding corn starch in water to hot chicken drippings.
Place chicken on plate with gravy along with garnishment.
I am looking forward to trying out sushi with white soy sauce.
