Story Behind this Recipe

My friend taught me this recipe in my school days.
At that time, I was taught to use 1 part soy sauce to 1 part marmalade, but now I use our family's golden ratio of 1:2.

It's a perfect balance of flavors; the sweetness of marmalade is not too overpowering, and the soy sauce isn't too salty.
