This was very good. I was nervous about cooking in sesame oil so I cooked in a bit of olive oil and added the sesame oil to the cornstarch mixture for flavor. Very tasty and a keeper.

OY VAY! This was DELICIOUS and FRESH and DELICIOUS! Being a low carber and wanting to cheat today, I served it over ramen noodles. What a fantastic, colorful, flavor-packed recipe!

Excellent recipe! I used smaller bay scallops and precooked the mushrooms with the asparagus (stir fried) and it was very tasty. Loved the sauce - nice and mild to go with seafood.
