This is sooo FULL of flavor! I just love cilantro. I did add some cooked shrimp and steamed broccoli.Thanks for a yummy Dish!
This is so unique and refreshing. I love oranges, so this is heaven for me! I also love tamari and soba noodles! I dont' care for fish sauce though, so I just added a little more tamari for a substitute, and if you could see how many bottles of booze I have bought just for recipes and not drinking, you'll understand why I just used white wine in place of the sake - I didn't want to buy another bottle of "recipe booze", LOL! I normally substitute something else for ginger in recipes, but I couldn't think of something else to use that wouldn't upset the delicate balance of this salad, so I just omitted it. I did toast the sesame seeds, though, and tossed in a little scallion. The amounts of chili oil and sesame oil are perfect here, don't adjust! Sometimes they can be overpowering, but here they're just perfect. Thanks for posting this, chia! I LOVE it!
This is a very tasty recipe, I think the orange juice and orange segments make it different. Must admit made it twice as I just used ordinary light soy sauce the first time, then used the tamari, much better with that. The flavour of tamari is definitely different to ordinary soy so it worth buying a bottle of tamari to make this recipe.
