I love oriental food...whether it's Chinese, Japanese, Korean style, it's all good but takeout can be a bit rough on the budget so I just recently started to take the plunge and try and master my own...yikes!. I came up with this recipe, playing with the ingredients a bit and wow...this came out tasty and delicious, my boyfriend really loved it as well. It made just the right serving for just the two of us.
