This was okay, but too salty. And I used low sodium soy sauce. If the salt could be toned down, I would give this 5 stars - the other marinade flavors were really good. I used shrimp and scallops and otherwise they both turned out fine.

I had only 1 lb of shrimps so I did half the marinade. I was out of green onions so I had to omit it :( I liked the taste of sesame oil. I used garlic powder instead of garlic. I cooked the shrimps in a skillet cause my barbecue is under snow. Thanks Jewelies :) Made for zaar star game.

I love it! Had to put it in skewers so that the shape can hold in the grill but otherwise it turned out great!
