Mirin, a sweet rice wine, is an essential ingredient in East Asian cooking. The Japanese use it to season salad dressings and to make teriyaki marinades and tempura dipping sauces.
In this recipe, the mirin balances the saltiness of the soy sauce and the bite of the ginger and garlic. You can find mirin in the Asian aisle at the supermarket or at Japanese markets.
