Can someone review this recipe? I feel it must be incomplete. The description mentions ginger and chili flakes but they don’t appear in the recipe. Should they be part of the marinade or the sauce?

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The recipe is complete as it is listed. The description is incorrect. We’ll make the correction. Thanks again.

Delicious! Would doubling the sauce amount to too much sodium. I felt this recipe needed a little more sauce. I added some cooked white rice on the side.
