    Pesto lover's Note:

    ZWT 6. I got this recipe from one of my very favorite cookbooks, The Complete Book of Korean Cooking, by Young Jin Song. I think most people would like this recipe, though it is a bit spicy and tangy. I usually use serrano chilies, but you could use jalapenos if you want less heat. Serve with plain white rice. I use Japanese short grain rice with this dish.
