This is something I made up one day when I had a craving for Chinese food.

Please, please...use low sodium soy sauce in this dish. After reducing, it was almost too salty to eat, and I'm a salt fiend. I think I would've enjoyed the flavor, if I hadn't been overwhelmed by the saltiness. It did come together pretty quickly, with ingredients I keep on hand, so a quick go-to dinner is only a few minutes away. Thanks for sharing, angeldawn89.
