Japanese Tempura Sauce

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Random Rachel

This recipe was given to me in Japan by Okumurasan. I don't know where to find sake or mirin here (maybe an asian market?) Okumurasan told me to just use 4 tsp sugar instead, however it won't taste quite the same. Sake and Mirin are both Japanese wines, and they add a distinct, sweet taste to the sauce.

Made the tempura sauce along with the Recipe #163392 that accompanies this. Outstanding even though I used a vegetable bouillion cube rather than a fish one.
