Ideas And Tips:

• Mirin is a condiment used in Japanese cuisine. Similar to sake, it is a rice wine that has lower alcohol content but higher sugar content. Mirin is usually added to fish to remove that fishy smell. It is also used in teriyaki sauce.

• Bonito stock is the most commonly used stock in Japanese cuisine. It is made from katsuobushi, which is a dried and fermented skipjack tuna. This broth is the base for many dishes such as miso and sauces such as soba.
