Old Lodge Skins lays down in the mountaintop. Time elapses. Old Lodge Skins gets up and walks back down the mountain. Hoffman asks what happened- how is he still alive? His reply... "Sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't."
The sauce had all the elements of a good Asian sauce: fresh ginger and fresh garlic, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, Chinese five spice powder, a toug if honey and the juice of two sweet tangerines. Somehow, it completely lacked flavor.
The addition of Siricha Sauce only made this dish hot - not more well balanced.
What can I say? Sometimes the magic works, and sometimes it doesn't.
