These taste awesome!!! I just love it when simple ingredients with so little effort to put together turn out this tasty. I used these as a protein to top a salad with which I drizzled with a combination of rice vinegar, general Tao sauce and honey..... YUM!!

Loved these. Easy to make and a pleasant change. Not an overly heavy soy sauce flavor. I ate them for breakfast with toast. They would be great in salad too.

Fantastic little appetizers! At first, I was a bit unsure how to rate these. DH had one for a snack after the 24 hour wait, and gave them a 4-star. Although instructions said to eat within 24 hours, I admit I waited an extra day. WOW!!! These picked up the soy sauce flavor, but were not salty at all. With a little sriracha sauce drizzled over them...nice!!! Thanks for posting, Mike! Made for Culinary Quest 2015 by a Toasted Tourist.
