How do I prepare a Ling Ling sauce?
Allow the sauce packet to reach room temperature when preparing the dish. To speed thawing, carefully place the packet in a bowl of hot water until you are ready to serve. Refrigerate any unused sauce immediately in a resealable container.

Always read the instructions printed on a product’s package prior to preparing it. Depending on the power of your microwave, cooking times may vary.
