Super easy

This recipe is literally near and dear to my heart! After I found and learned to make the low sodium versions of the asian sauce needed for alot of recipes, this is the first one I made. I dare you to serve this to friends and family and not have them know its a LoSo meal. It is just popping with flavors. And well it kinda looks sexy on the plate. Using a pineapple carved out to serve it is just the visual WOW factor, adding the amazing taste. A pure winner. You can add some additional ingredients to suit your own taste. I have added cashews and water chestnuts to mine and it was very good. Save some homemade soy sauce to drizzle over top if you like.

I always serve mine over a bed of white or jasmine rice, either adds 0 sodium to the meal.

Make some extra Soy Sauce to use as a condiment at your table.
