  • If you can’t find gochujang, feel free to replace with equal parts sriracha sauce. 
  • If you’d like to make this recipe gluten free, replace soy sauce with tamari or gluten free soy sauce and replace bread crumbs with some gluten free bread crumbs instead. 
  • For some really tasty tahini, I am a huge fan of Soom Foods. Use this link to get 10% off of  your order with them.
