Mirin is a condiment made from rice, often found in Japanese recipes. It adds sweetness and flavor. Mirin can be found in the Asian or gourmet section of large supermarkets as well as Asian markets.

Easy to make but not much flavor. Plus, the butter lettuce did not hold up well for the wrap. Will keep looking for a better lettuce wrap recipe.
