I made this with white wine instead of sherry and freshly grated ginger. My husband and 18 month old son loved it and asked for seconds. Thanks!

I thought my boyfriend was going to lick the bowl. Only thing I added was some asian chili garlic sauce and some ground red pepper for heat...Cuz we like it HOT ;)
