It seemed 2 Tbsps of soy sauce for the marinade was a lot but because the comments were so great, I decided to follow the recipe exactly. Everyone agreed they were it a bit too salty so I was disappointed that I hadn't followed my first instincts to reduce to 1 Tbsp. We tend to decrease salt on most foods - just a personal preference I guess.
I do agree that the marinade is pretty salty, but I think I just really dig salt myself. It probably could do with a reduction.
I will be making this sauce again soon, so I'll try it with half the soy sauce as you recommend.
Again, I loved it with lots of salt, I'll probably drink even more with less salt...
Light soy sauce is used for seasoning but it also adds flavor. It does not affect the color of the dish. Light soy sauce is made from the first pressing of the soybeans and referred to as "first soy sauce" or premium light soy sauce. This type of soy sauce is sold as premium because the flavor of the first pressing is considered superior.
Dark soy sauce adds both flavor and color. It is aged longer and contains molasses to give its distinctive appearance. The flavor of this variety develops with heat so it is mainly used for cooking. It has a richer, slightly sweeter, less salty flavor.
In Chinese cooking, one of the two types, or a mixture of both, is used to achieve a particular flavor and color for the dish.
These are only two varieties of Chinese soy sauce. There are many other types and classifications of soy from other Asian countries such as Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Korean, Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines and even Hawaii.
I am making this for dinner tonight and I just noticed that the printed recipe calls for RED PEPPER flakes and the video says CHILI Flakes. I will go with the red pepper, which aren't as hot, but which one is the correct one (for next time)? It looks delicious....
This turned out to be a real winner and the sauce is fabulous, but had enough heat with even the red pepper flakes. I actually managed to get the garlic ALMOST to the same state as in the video so a great learning experience. I will do this meal again. Thanks.
My name is Jackie and I'm writing to you about the Red Chili Flakes, I can get crused red pepper flakes but I can't find Red Chili Flakes, what type of grocery stores would I most likely find Red Chili Flakes.

There are many names for this ingredient. I think you are fine to use your "crushed red pepper flakes". I used crushed chili flakes and I believe they are the same thing.
I have bought red chili flakes before and they were basically the same thing as the chili flakes that I had used in the past.
They are the kind that come in a shaker in a pizza restaurant, which are usually just a mix of various seeds from chilis.
Which ever chili you use, don't worry, they are not the main event to this marinade. In fact, you could even use a bit of cayenne pepper instead, if you wanted.
a departure from the recipe I know, however what would you think about marinating the prawns as above - and then patting them dry and then frying them coated with with panko - and using the dipping sauce?
I'd appreciate your thoughts!
Sound delicious, you will just likely have to use more oil to get nice even color on the prawns (essentially shallow frying them).
You could also dip the prawns in flour and then egg before the panko just to give them more of a batter-like texture.
Good Luck - when's dinner :-)
