This is me trying to recreate a Szechuan dish I had in Sydney Australia. The restaurant in Chatswood that my husband & I went to was one of the best meals of our-lives. We have both travel through Asia & Europe, but this little restaurant was amazing. I am still trying every Szechuan we come across hoping that it will match the meal we had 3 years ago on the other side of the planet. This dish is very spicy!
