Sweet and tangy sauce that is super easy to make. We used the sauce for a stir fry of sorts, pouring it over broccoli and pan seared scallops. Very tasty.

I was surprised how bland this was. I thought about substituting the ketchup for shrimp cocktail sauce. I think BBQ sauce would be better than this. Will not be making this one again.
