Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Delicious. I made the second version. Would make again, it's just a bit annoying having to do the oil at the last minute.

    I made both variations. I prefer variation #1 because of the addition of sesame oil and the salted chiles I have is spicier than the dried red pepper flakes. To me, variation #2 is greasier because of the hot oil, but it was my husband's choice because it has less vinegar and he has an aversion to vinegar.
