Vegetarian Fish Sauce


1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce (see Soy Sauce Substitute recipe, listed under sauces)

3 Tablespoons mirin ( see notes)

1 Tablespoon water

Juice of 1/2 lime

1 clove garlic, minced very fine

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

Directions:Simply combine the ingredients.

Makes an excellent flavoring base for stir-fry
The mirin is soy-based so it has phe. Substitute same amount of sweet sherry or the same amount or dry sherry plus 1 tsp sugar to reduce PHE.
This did not store well in the refrigerator. Lost taste over time.
