Mirin is a sweet, low-alcohol wine that's used for seasoning dishes and can be found at most Asian supermarkets, but if you don't have it at home or don't want to buy it for the sake of this recipe, then substitute 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar, mixing it with the soy sauce mixture before adding it in.

Note: The package of seaweed will most likely instruct you to rehydrate it first in water before using it, but since we are adding it to hot water, we can skip this step. If you were going to use it in a salad, then you'd want to follow the package instructions.
