The flavor of seitan

Is seitan supposed to be cooked with seasonings and such, as opposed to simply frying in oil, in order to taste good? I made it from scratch for the first time, and I'm hesitant to add it to a sauce I made because it tastes like a combination of flour, flavorless chicken, and watery soy sauce, and nothing like the mock duck I've had before.

Edit: After reading this over I realized what a noob question this is. I thought maybe it would be okay plain since it was simmered in broth before frying, but the broth was mostly water. Thanks! :)
