Asian food is one of my family favorites. So is this delicious appetizer recipe, which captures those flavors you find at your favorite Chinese restaurant. Who can resist these fabulous island teriyaki tiki bites! I know i can't especially when you dip these into a sweet and sour sauce. I guarantee if you put these in front of a crowd; especially at a football party get together; they will be gone in seconds. The ultimate game party food for any sports gathering! Try them and see.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These little bites have quite the BITE! But even I - who is fairly weary of spicy hot food - was so impressed by how nicely all of the flavors come together in this recipe. We love their creative presentation, and the recipe would be easy to double or triple depending on your party size. Party on!

Hi Jeanette, this looks like a fabulous recipe! I love Asian foods, especially with a little kick. I see an "Island Teriyaki Sauce" listed, but I've never heard of that. Is Island a brand, or is this a special blend, or what? Congrats for winning and thank you for sharing!
