Mikan (Japanese Mandarin) Marinade Sauce, 4.58 oz
Developed specifically for marination, this sauce features the fresh flavor of mikan (a small, Mandarin orange-like citrus) grown in Miyamoto Orange Garden’s own terraced orchards by the seaside under abundant sunlight and caressed by ocean breezes without using chemical pesticides. The sauce is derived from the company’s signature, Salt-Preserved Japanese Mandarin Sauce series, which is made by salt-preserving mikan—after the mikan is picked, it is crushed with its rind and salt-preserved for two weeks until it naturally turns pasty and its umami increases. Then refined sugar is added to make it perfect for marinating meat or seafood. Although it’s primarily intended to be used for marination, it can also be enjoyed as a versatile seasoning. If you add vinegar, you can turn it into a pickling sauce. Or if you mix it with olive oil, you make a refreshing dressing. Its savory kick with a pleasant sourness and aroma from the mikan can add a gentle accent to any dish.
