This is good, but very delicate and mild in flavor. So I kicked it up so I added 6 cloves garlic and a tbsp of freshly minced ginger instead of the smaller amounts listed. I used fresh pineapple, chopped instead of canned, which made the dish only mildly sweet. The second time I made it, I turned it into a Thai version by subsituting the soy sauce for fish sauce, lime juice & rice vinegar. I subsituted the green onions for Thai Basil and cilantro. It, too, was a great version.

Made this to accompany a grilled salmon dinner for Mother's Day. No leftovers and several requests for the recipe--it was a huge success! Just the right combination of sweet and spicy. Super simple and easy to make--cooked the rice the night before-took only minutes to prepare for dinner. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
