Mirin is a commonly used seasoning in Japanese cuisine. The viscous structure of mirin gives dishes a nice shine and the taste is sweet, full and round, with a hint of umami. This popular seasoning is also known as sweet sake. Good mirin has an alcohol content of around 14%. Mirin is everyone’s friend. The sweet taste has the wonderful property of bringing flavors together in a dish and removing unpleasant meat and fish smells. A commonly used combination for marinades is mirin, shoyu or tamari, sushi vinegar and sesame oil
