I always try a recipe the first time by following the directions exactly, which is what I did here. Only left out the peanuts as they seemed stale when I pulled them out of the pantry. This was fantastic and truly restaurant quality. I loved it and my gourmet-in-in-the-making ten year old was raving about it. He said it smelled wonderful while cooking, said it looked great before he tried it, and then followed that with a Woohoo and requests for seconds and thirds. If that is not a win.... Don't know what is. Even hubby who hates ethnic dishes of all kind and usually answers in the negative when I ask "should I make this again" said it's ok. At my house this is the best I can expect for a new recipe. Next time doubling the quantity to have leftovers for lunch. Do watch the video, and if you like a mix of sweet and salty with a bit of spice, go for it. Some of the commenters who left negative reviews said it was sweet... Well, look at the ingredients! And as far as salt goes, I use a low sodium tamari instead of regular soy sauce in all my recipes, and it is great.
