Delectable! Light, flavorful, we loved it. Seemed like more marinade was needed - I had to keep stirring the carrots around while they were marinating because they weren't "submersed" enough. Next time I will double the amount of marinade. Read More

It was a bit too salty for my taste next time I'll try to reduce the soy sauce and add a bit of sugar... Read More

These were really tasty. I didn't have a grill to finish these in so I stir fried them in the marinade on the stove top. Delicious. Read More

I was a little worried about this one as other reviewers suggested the sour flavor was unpleasant but we just loved the kick it gave this and the flavor was amazing. I should note that I left out the five spice powder (not a fan of it). I chose not to grill as I just couldn't see that working. I followed the recipe up to that point keeping the carrots in the saucepan and letting them marinate then turned them to low heat and simmered for about 20 minutes. Read More

There wasn't enough of the marinade and it was a tad salty to me. I did eat it but I don't know if I will make it again. Read More

I changed absolutely nothing except I cooked them on my indoor electric grill. A lot of people reviewed that these are salty... be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce. The rice vinegar gave them a nice zip that could easily be mistaken for saltiness too. Really good! Read More

These were delicious! There wasn't enough liquid in the marinade to even come close to covering the carrots so I doubled the soy sauce and vinegar. (Most of the liquid gets discarded in the end anyway.) I also cooked them on the oven using the broil setting. I will definitely be making these again! Read More
