This was pretty good but a little heavy on the maple syrup so next time I will cut back on that. Other than that it was perfect and super simple! Read More

Super good and easy. I needed more water than the recipe called for to have it be the right consistency, but no big deal. I messed with the soy and fish sauce proportions to get it to my taste, but that's just me. Great base recipe that you can make quickly and tweak slightly to your taste buds. Winner! Read More
