  3. Broil the fish for 5 minutes about 3 to 4 inches from the flame. Then, spoon a generous amount of glaze on each fillet and continue broiling until the fish is opaque, about 5 more minutes. Watch carefully. You can brown the glaze, but do not allow it to burn. 

Cooks Notes

  1. No reason for sugar in Japanese food prep - Sumura Organic is one good option
  2. You can mix Mirin with Rice Vinegar for a good salad dressing
