A Recipe for Eel Sauce

homemade sushi rolls sliced on a plate

Eel sauce is a sweet and salty sauce that is easy to make and elevates the flavor of sushi. No eels were harmed in the creation of this sauce. :) 



1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup mirin


Heat all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat until reduced by nearly half. Sauce will thicken as it cools. 

Drizzle over sushi rolls, grilled chicken, fish, or eel.
