Although this recipe uses a lot of ingredients, it’s easy to throw together and incredibly delicious. It’s sweet, spicy and tangy. What’s more, the leftovers are perfect hot or cold. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a crowd. Just serve on a bed of creamy coconut ginger rice, and you’re in business!
