This was a great recipe to start with, just needed a few extra ingredients. I added cilantro, Saracha, some chopped broccoli, and a little extra soy sauce. It was the hit of the holiday party and I'll be making it again.

I made this when we had friends round for dinner and it was a huge success! Large portion for 4 people, this could make a great BBQ accompaniment though. The Peanut Butter sauce is yummy!
