There are a lot of smiles in this house tonight. I made a double-batch of your Recipe #333068 so I could make a double-batch of this recipe. What great successes. I used wombok as the Chinese cabbage, and had 450 grams of already cooked duck. I used toasted sesame seeds. In place of parsley, I used fresh coriander (cilantro). Amazing and wonderful flavours. The smells in the kitchen were pretty darn good too! Thanks for a real winner.
