  1. 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?

  2. 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.
