Early in our marriage (when I didn't have anything cooking-wise, least of all a clue!), I would browse the grocery store entryway for recipes. And the wondrous thing about this type of recipe is that they tend to be fool-proof, delicious, and usually affordable. This one is Asian in base and the trick to making Asian-tasting food is to use Asian tasting ingredients like sesame oil. My biggest mistake back then was to use the suggested substitutes because they were what I had on hand. And who (in a primarily Dutch community) keeps sesame oil on hand. The first time I splurged was amazing!
