Mirin Marinade

Recipe by KauaiCarolAnn

This is superb on ahi or scallops to be grilled and served either on a salad or as a main course. Try it with the Pineapple Wasabi Aioli for dipping. Yum! It is enough for 2 good sized ahi steaks (3/4 pound total)or about 1/2 pound large scallops. Reserve an ounce to use as a baste during the grilling process to avoid cross contamination.

  1. Mix all ingredients together; stir well and marinate ahi or scallops for 30 minutes. No longer or the acids will start to cook the fish.
  2. Reserve 1oz to use for basting while grilling.
  3. Sear ahi about 2-3 minutes each side over a medium high heat for a medium to medium rare cook.
