  1. This was delicious and so easy to make. I substituted one brown onion for the red onion and green shallots. All the flavours were subtle and didn’t overpower each other.

    last night I cooked chicken thighs, this recipe looks great. I think I might make it for tonight. also what is tamari. please. is it spicy.

    1. Based on a google search I don’t believe it sounds like it would be spicy no 🙂
      “Tamari is a Japanese sauce made from fermented soybeans. It has a thicker consistency and a more balanced flavor than Chinese soy sauce, making it a good choice for a dipping sauce. It’s also vegan and gluten-free. Tamari is often priced a little higher than soy sauce. You can substitute tamari for soy sauce, and vice versa, though you may find that you have a preference for one flavor over the other, or prefer to use each for a specific culinary purpose”
