    As suggested by other reviewers I halved the soy sauce. I now wonder if it was too little, I think I'll add a tad more next time. There will be a next time as this is a different side dish and one that I'm happy I found. Thanks Outliercook!  -  25 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really like this recipe! I love the combined sweet and salty taste...however, I agree with the previous reviewer on the point of the recipe calling for too much soy sauce. I only added half of what the recipe said to use, and it came out great.  -  23 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe sounded delicious to me, but when I made it...too salty tasting--too much soy sauce! The soy sauce covered the taste of cilantro and avocado completely-- which is what made it sound so good to me.  -  19 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
