Step 1

Combine 1/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce, the mirin, ginger, sugar and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir together remaining tablespoon soy sauce and cornstarch, then stir into saucepan. Cook for 3 minutes over medium heat or until thickened. Divide sauce into two separate bowls, 5 tablespoons in one bowl and 3 tablespoons in the other.
