    Barefoot Beachcomber's Note:

    Another favourite gingery recipe from "Red, Hot and Green". The book describes this as invigorating, refreshing and lusty in flavour! Low calorie and fat but still satisfying. Could be fat free by eliminating the oil and peanuts. My family is crazy about this taste!

      My family loved this. It was not too sweet and had a lot of flavor. The only substitutions I made were to use regular rice wine vinegar and instead of peanut oil I used a mixture of canola and toasted sesame oil. Yum! Served with Mean Chef's "Zuni Rolls with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce" recipe #25025, but I went real easy on the chipotle. Excellent light dinner that everyone, including the kids, enjoyed.
