Story Behind this Recipe
This started out as a miso sauce without the mayonnaise. When I added the mayonnaise, it became much milder and went better with more types of food, which is why I uploaded the recipe. It goes so well with rice!
The perilla or shiso leaf will keep its bright green color if you sauté it first in a little oil. Use whichever miso you prefer. If it is too salty, add a little sugar. You can also use mirin instead of sake.
