This recipe is a love/hate relationship. First off and most important, watch the video!! There are valube tips on the technique of making this dish. I cooked this on high the ENTIRE time and did not burn it. Don't be afraid to use high like the recipe calls for. As long as your flipping or stirring frequently, you are not going to burn it. Also, the cooking time is off on the recipe, at least for me it was. Took twice as long to reduce and caramelize, about 15-20 minutes. The flavor of the dish is like teriyaki. I personally didn't think it was too sweet, like other reviewers mentioned.
However, I too agree that this dish is too salty, hence the missing stars. It was almost too salty for me to eat the first night I made it. Others in my family did not think so, though. The leftovers on the other hand were just fine. The saltiness diminished overnight in the fridge. I might have to find a different fish sauce to use or adjust the recipe to my taste.
Overall, though, I will be making this dish over and over again because my family and I loved it. Best recipe I've found on Allrecipes in a long time.
