This is the first time that I have used rice vinegar and sesame oil. I had heard that sesame oil is quite strong so I cut that back to 1 tsp to start with and I am glad I did as it was a dominant
flavour. I sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on just before serving. I thought it was quite good but agree with Boomette that fresh garlic and ginger may be even better. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

This is a great recipe but something was missing in the sauce. Maybe fresh ginger would be better than ground ginger. And finely chopped garlic would add so much flavor. I'll try again :) Thanks red and white kitchen :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
