This is ridiculously spicy....far to much chilli and pepper. I love spicy food but I couldnt taste anything else because the spice completely overwhelmed all the other flavours. Id recommend half a tablespoon chilli paste and no chilli flakes or pepper. Add a further 2 tablespoons of hoisin too. - 20 Apr 2015


Made this as we are eating healthy and find that food can be quite bland. This was lovely. Used the ingredients loosely, and it had delicious taste to it. Didn't have any hoisin sauce, so used Teriyaki, but will made this a lot more. Just adjust the seasonings to your taste. - 24 Jan 2016
