I was pleasantly surprised with this "Simple" and easy recipe!! It was absolutely Delish! Just looking at the ingredients - I thought perhaps this may be a watered down bland dish with garlic flavor... WOW!! Was I mistaken! It is Superb! The only thing I changed... Heated up the pan on Medium heat and used Extra Virgin Olive oil... Superb!! Thanks so much for posting this Great recipe!!

We liked that this recipe is super easy to make and requires very little prep. It went well with my grilled Asian duck breasts. While the minimal ingredients are what make it easy, it was a tad too plain for us. I thought that this recipe was worth a try and is versatile enough to accompany many dishes. Thanks!

I agree, it is simple but tasty! I used the peanut oil and added a splash of sesame oil. Excellent! I'll make this again, thanx.
