If you don't know it by now, I like to steal recipes. Ha! Ha! Here is another favorite recipe of mine from the cookbook of Simply Ming. I don't usually like to make his recipes since he has complicated sauces and I am a simple kind of girl, but I tried this one for a special occasion and it was divine. The flavors are unique and really refreshing in this recipe, and it is not to difficult to make. You will have to probably go to a special market to purchase a few items, but what the heck....I love special markets because it feels like a new adventure.
