We did this recipe for a meal we had New Year's Eve and it was a big success, it was delicious. We used. Dark soy sauce, but if you want it pale like the picture I suggest light soy sauce - 01 Jan 2013


I didn't have any cream cheese so I tweaked it a bit. I added celery and garlic and replaced the soy sauce with a pint of stock and some dry sherry. I also omitted the butter so it made it a healthier option. It was extremely tasty. I will try it again with the correct ingredients so I can compare. - 11 Mar 2015
