"Soy sauce is really a multi-purpose seasoning."
-Martin Yan

The refrigerator light goes on...

Martin Yan is right. Soy sauce is a great all-purpose sauce with saltiness and umami that complements recipes. It does take some restraint and using just a bit goes a long way.

Miso is the same way. It contains a lot of salt but a special tangy umami flavor and takes only a bit to have a major impact on a dish. Pair with big flavors like salmon, beef and pork for a great meal.
