This is a really simple dish. It makes a great entree for 6 or a main meal for 4 people. This recipe can easily be made gluten-free - just ensure your ingredients are gluten-free. Most tamari sauce is GF or I use "Fountain" brand soy sauce that is now GF. If you do not require a gluten free sauce you can use regular soy sauce
