This can be done as an appetizer before a meal or as a first course. 5 spice powder is usually found in all grocery stores now. Oriental stores would have it and it is good with a number of meats.

This was interesting. The first time I made it we enjoyed it a lot more, the second time, I think there was just too much 5 spice powder for my taste. I prefer it with the barest hint of spice taste, rather than a heavy dusting. It's definitely a different sort of flavour- might be something I'd try to tweak again into an appetizer or something.
