Eel Sauce for Sushi

Eel Sauce for Sushi
Eel sauce is the dark, sweet sauce used on grilled eel, as well as many types of sushi rolls
  • ½ cup Soy Sauce Gluten Free if needed
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cup Mirin Japanese sweet wine
  1. Combine all three ingredients in a small saucepan, whisk well to combine.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, and simmer gently until sauce volume has reduced to about ¾ cup. (If you boil it hard, you will end up with a caramel, not a sauce!)
  3. Remove from heat, allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Once cooled, transfer to fridge and chill until you’re ready to use it.
  5. To serve, spoon sauce into a pastry bag or a sauce bottle (pictured). Cut the tip off the pastry bag (if applicable), squeeze sauce over prepared sushi, as desired.
