Delicious! I REALLY enjoyed this. My hubs prefers Sichuan-style Asian dishes, but I tend to enjoy sweeter ones (i.e. sesame, orange, sweet & sour, etc.), so it's no surprise that I liked this more than he did. :) Not only was this super yummy, it also satisfied my craving for Chinese take-out lol! As many others suggested, I too made more sauce (3 x's worth). In retrospect, I wish I would have only doubled the sauce, starting with the recommended 2 T teriyaki / honey and adding more to taste. I had FAR too much sauce!!! This in no way affected the outcome, but I will certainly not add as much sauce next time. I also did NOT find it necessary to make the "fish & things" teriyaki sauce so many reviewers say "made" the dish. If you purchase a good quality teriyaki, you'll be fine. I used Kikkoman's roasted garlic (couldn't find Mr. Yoshida's) and thought it was EXCELLENT! Other than cutting back on the sauce, my only other suggested change is to not cook the veggies as long as directed. Since I prefer slightly crunchy veggies as oppsoed to soft ones, I'll definitely keep this in mind next time around. NOTE: Do not make the same mistake I almost did.... I found Dynasty brand 5 spice powder in my grocer's ethnic aisle. A 2 oz. jar cost me $2! A 1.25 oz. bottle of Spice Islands 5 spice (in the baking aisle) was DOUBLE this price. Served with steamed rice, egg rolls & almond cookies for dessert. Thanks SO much for sharing, Amber. This will be added to my recipe box for sure! :-)
