I give it 3 stars just for the creativity. However when it comes right down to it, the watermelon really isn't bringing a lot of flavor to the dish, and it honestly seemed like a vector for Teriyaki sauce. (If after reading this review, you do decided to make it, I recommend removing the outer 4mm of rind, otherwise it takes too long to cook and has a fibrous texture--much like ‘woody’ part of an asparagus stalk). Granted I didn’t follow the recipe exactly—I added ½ cup Teriyaki instead of ¼ cup (big mistake-keep it to ¼ cup otherwise all you can taste is Teriyaki and it comes out too salty). I also added a tsp of creamy peanut butter to vegetable oil (I wasn’t about to buy a whole thing of peanut oil just for one recipe.) It sounds good in principle, but it just didn’t turn out for me, maybe that extra ¼ of Teriyaki killed it for me. I served it over rice and that seemed to work well. Happy cooking!
