    Baz's Note:

    Easy dish and delicious. Szechuan pepper, also known as anise pepper, is actually the dried red berries of a type of ash tree - hot and peppery. Should always be roasted before use. If not already done, place the 'peppercorns' on a baking tray and roast in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 15 minutes.

      This is wonderful!!I added steamed brocolli just before serving. I also had a jar of ground Szechuan pepper on hand, and used that instead of roasting the peppercorns, which worked out well. Thanks for sharing, Baz!
