Author Notes: So, as much as we love Irish food (did we mention our obsession with Irish Soda bread?), we challenged Chef Ivan Flowers to deliciously incorporate our Maui Maid Teriyaki Marinade into some traditional Irish flavors. Well, he knocked it out of the park. Plus, if you use our All Natural Teriyaki Marinade, this recipe is gluten free!Maui Maid Teriyaki
