Definately the taste IS 5 star, TRUE! I had never before used so much sesame oil in a recipe too! Is part of the unique taste, at least for me, This is a VERY enoyable, healthy recipe! OK, had a bit of trouble with the peanut sauce, TRUE! I will chalk it up to maybe was me too! Had 3/4 pound unsalted peanuts, 1/4 pound no oil unsalted macadamia nuts as had on hand today, But with the sauce I did have to play, Getting it smooth took patience and persistence DH did say, I was smart and stayed out of his way! :) Did need to add more water as with each batch, but finally did get there, The sauce taste is good and between the two make a great pair! THANKS!
