I was attempting to make a homemade shrimp stir fry last night and it came out a little too sweet... I sauteed red onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, shrimp, and spinach. When the shrimp was cooked through I added mirin, and before I added sesame oil, soy sauce, and red curry paste I whisked those three ingredients together. Then I stir fried some Thai rice noodles into the mix. It was delicious and sticky and wonderful, except for the extreme sweetness that I would like to cut slightly.
I was thinking lime juice? I just thought I'd see if I could find some input.
