Enjoy this deliciously sweet, salty, and spicy moreish snack!!!  So good you'll be craving it time and time again!  Please note you will have more than enough of the ginger sauce so you can use the residual as a dipping sauce for veggies or perhaps mixed into rice.  
The nutritional information unfortunately does not include the info for the hot chili oil and also assumes that all of the sauce will be consumed equally over 4 servings.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
