These are excellent! I forgot to add the sherry/apple juice and they still turned out great. We used a frying pan on the grill to cook these. I also added 1 Tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds during the last few minutes of grilling. Don't add earlier or they will burn. I made this to go along with the Sesame Ginger Chicken and Sesame Vegetable Medley recipes from this site.
