“This is from HeartSmart Chinese Cooking, by Steven Wong. Every single recipe in this book is delicious, and since I can't post them all, you should just buy it. The recipes are great because they taste authentically Asian, but are a lot lower in fat and salt than a lot of traditional recipes. Prep time includes marinating time. Can be served over rice, but I find it's a filling meal in itself.”
