・Hon mirin (sweet rice seasoning) is a key condiment in Japanese cooking, thanks to its subtle natural sweetness and balanced flavour.
・Unlike cheaper mirin-style condiments, hon mirin (meaning “real mirin”) is a term reserved for a more carefully crafted condiment containing just three ingredients—glutinous rice, rice koji, and alcohol—slowly fermented and matured for an altogether superior product.
・Chicken aside, teriyaki sauce works well with beef and pork as well as fish, particularly salmon and firm-fleshed white fish such as cod and haddock. Teriyaki sauce is also delicious with tofu and other plant-based proteins. Hon mirin works to mask the odour of raw fish so is particularly recommended for fish
