We show that under the hypotheses of Strominger, Yau and Zaslow, a mirror partner of a K3 surface X with a fibration in special Lagrangian tori can be obtained by rotating the complex structure of X within its hyper-Kähler family of complex structures. Furthermore, the same hypotheses force the B-field to vanish.
