Got this recipe from Darrel a friend of mine who loves oriental food like me. These are so yummy. I had a little trouble finding the ingredients but please don't delete any. I did use Black Bean Garlic paste because I could find just plain Bean Paste. The Chili sauce is not enough to make it hot which I liked. I followed it exactly. Enjoy
