From About.com...a garlicky sauce is a great way to add extra flavor to stir-fry dishes, particularly seafood dishes. The seasonings for garlic sauce are available in the international food section of many local supermarkets. Use the sauce in stir-fry dishes or any other Asian type dishes. Note: Instead of using 2 types soy sauce, I just use 2 tablespoons dark.

This tasted great- I just had some trouble with it "lumping up" and not wanting to mix into my fried rice. I will try less cornstarch as adding more water didn't help. Thanks for sharing - made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.
