“What kind of seaweed is Mirin?
How should I eat it? ?"

I'm sure there are many people who have never eaten it or heard its name.
Unknown ingredients that you have never eaten before,
Even for food lovers, it takes courage to try your hand at it.

In fact, “Mirin” is a versatile seaweed that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.
This time, I would like you to try it out for the first time.
How to enjoy the seasoning “Irizake” recommended by Sea Vegetable members

First of all, do you know what “senshu” is?

Senshu is a seasoning made by adding plums and bonito flakes to Japanese sake and boiling it down.
Its history is older than soy sauce, which is familiar to us Japanese people, and has been used since the Muromachi period.

As soy sauce has become cheaper to make, the use of senshu has become less common, but in recent years it has once again gained attention as a healthy all-purpose seasoning that contains less salt than soy sauce.

Mirin goes perfectly with such brewed sake.


Recommended is Mirin pickled in senshu.

Place the salted and thoroughly drained mirin in a storage container, pour in the brewed sake until it's just covered, and let it sit overnight.

The more you bite into the mirin, the texture becomes smoother in your mouth, and the rich aroma of the dashi stock and the exquisite sourness of the plums combine to create a dish that you won't be able to stop eating with your chopsticks.

You can cook quickly without using a fire, so it's perfect for small dishes on hot days.
A dish that goes well with alcohol.

If you have any leftovers, we recommend storing them in the refrigerator and finding your preferred pickling level.

If you marinate it overnight, the flavor of the dashi will soak into the mirin, giving it a more plump texture.

It has a long shelf life, so if you make a little extra and store it in the refrigerator, you can easily enjoy it for a long time. Senshu itself has a light color, so it's nice to be able to take advantage of Mirin's beautiful reddish-purple color◎
