Top Review by Chef Tweaker

I am eating this now out of the freezer so its been a while since I originally made it. Somehow I added too much salt which was my own fault. I like the ginger in the dish but I did not add the bacon. Maybe they would clash? When I make this again with the right amount of seasonings I may update the review.
