I made this with only about a tablespoonful of sesame oil and I don't think the remainder was missed at all. Also subbed sake for the Sherry (I was out). Delicious marinade for grilled chicken. We really enjoyed this. Thanks.

from prep to clean up, this was VERY easy to make and VERY tasty -- my husband and kids all loved it. I will definitely make this again.
