“I was inspired to create this new Asian sauce for fish by another recipe which I posted a long time ago. Some folks will say this is Zany because you are actually pouring shrimp over cooked fish. We ZeeZanyZestyCookz…say that the shrimp elevates a good fish dish to a 'terrific' Asian dish. This recipe is Zesty by the use of the dried red pepper which gives a little ‘kick’ to the sauce. I created this recipe…but other Zestys helped with suggestions. Therefore it truly does reflect our teamwork as well. Posted for the Asian Wild Card challenge in ZWT #6-2010.”
