Jerk Seitan with Squash

I made a delicious seitan accompaniment to baked squash today - possibly the best seitan I've tasted! I took a box of seitan, sliced it into thin rectangles maybe 1" x 3/4" x 1/4" thick, and marinated in Volcano Lime Burst (water, organic lime juice, and lemon oil - but just lemon or lime juice would have been fine) plus coarsely chopped green chili pepper.

I think the key to this dish is that I heated oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat and cooked, after individually at a higher temperature than I normally do, flipping when crispy. I ended up with reasonably crispy seitan pieces, which I then dredged in a mild jerk seasoning. I served within some baked squash - very tasty!
