Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup mirin
  • 1 piece kombu (3×3-inch or about 3 grams)
  • ¼ cup bonito flakes
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup grapefruit juice

Instructions

Place the vinegar, mirin and kombu in a small saucepan. Set over medium heat and let mixture come to a simmer. Take off the heat and gently stir in the bonito flakes. Let mixture steep for about 10 minutes. Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the mixture over a bowl, reserving the liquid and saving the kombu and bonito flakes for another use. Allow to cool to room temperature, then add the citrus juices. Cover and store in your refrigerator. Will keep for about 1 week, refrigerated.
