2 Tbsp sake (optional)
2 Tbsp mirin
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp rice vinegar
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp miso
1/4 tsp katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)
1/8 Fuji apple (Any red apple would do)
2 tsp toasted white sesame seeds
In a bowl, add the sake, mirin, sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, miso, katsuobushi, and simmer for 11 minutes. Mix to combine, then strain into a bowl with a lid.
Add the sesame seeds and grated apple to the sauce and mix well to incorporate and cover.
Place the sauce in the fridge to for 1 hour before using or overnight in the refrigerator if possible, so the flavors can come together. Enjoy!
