This reciepe was adapted from one of the best sites if found yet and i surf a lot for stuff like hands down the best for anything asian.This woman has had her stuff exploited by some shitty people so i wanna give the credit she is overdue on,also these ingredients might take time to find but are essential to the dish,one more thing they must be grilled to bring out the flavor.make sure your skewers are soaked for at least an hour two
