This was quick, simple and delicious! I didn't make the garnishes ~ just served with steamed carrots and Asian noodles. This would cross over very easily into the appetizer category. My husband pronounced the sauce a bit "too tangy" but I think a little brown sugar would make him happy next time! This goes in my "keeper" cookbook. Thanks for posting!
