This is not a super easy recipe to make because involves several steps but don’t be discourage with a little organizational preparation you can do this. I do think having a deep fryer helps to control the temperature of the frying. Also I fry for just a few minutes and I finish the cooking process in the oven that way my deep frying is less of it.

1/2 cup Soy sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 TBsp corn syrup
