    VenomousKate's Note:

    This is a strange combination of flavors which somehow works out, particularly if you love the flavor of peanuts AND sesame oil. The secret is cooking the zucchini VERY fast to retain the crunch. It's a side dish good for impressing those "well-traveled eaters" we all know.
