1/3 cup sake 

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter 

2 tablespoons hondashi 

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger

2 teaspoons salt

1/3 bunch fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

1/3 bunch fresh mint, coarsely chopped

1/3 bunch scallions, finely chopped

Directions
