Bring one of the most fundamental ingredients in Japanese cuisine into your cooking with this mirin rice wine style seasoning. Unlike 'true' mirin seasoning, which has a high alcohol content, this mirin style seasoning provides the same deep sweetness of flavour with less than 1% alcohol. Add to sauces, marinades, soups and stir fries.

Mirin style seasoning such as this was invented relatively recently, at a time when the rice used to make traditional mirin (also known as 'true' mirin) was in short supply and alcohol taxes were high. Although these problems no longer exist and traditional mirin is in vast supply, many people prefer to use mirin style seasoning because of its lower cost and lower alcohol content. Take a look at Japan Centre's Mirin and Cooking Sake section for our entire mirin range.

Mirim is used to add a bright touch to grilled (broiled) fish or to remove the fishy smell. A small amount is often used instead of sugar or soy sauce. It should not be used in excess however, as its flavor is quite strong. The word Mirim (Mirin in Japanese) is used as a cooking wine in Korean and Japanese cuisine.
