This was inspired by my favorite Thai food. We always eat it with sushi (seasoned rice). So the whole meal comes out to a japanese/thai medley. This meal was an experiment and the first time I made this i was worried that the flavors of the sauce and seasoned rice would not mix well...this has become one of our favorite meals...kinda sweet and tangy.
