"Don't use mirin, use ****?"

Gualtier Malde | Apr 7, 2008 05:18 PM

Shopping one day we had mirin on our list for our prochef son who makes sushi. Couldn't find it and asked a sushi preparer. She said that we shouldn't use mirin at all. All it was was MSG and Japanese sushi makers don't use it. She named an alternative which I recognized at the time but now cannot recall (rice wine?).

What was it, do you suppose?
