I make this recipe almost every week. It is one of the few dinners our selective-eating teenager eats with gusto! I tweak it sometimes -- we like it a little saucier (never mind the calories), so I'll double the sauce recipe and then not use quite all of it (makes a great salad dressing base and is quickly used). We add quite a bit more cayenne to spice things up. Sometimes I add a clove of crushed garlic and/or a teaspoon of fish sauce, and always garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds. Delicious!
