To say that Jeff and I are obsessed with this dish is an understatement! We consume it once a week, and it will keep overnight so you can enjoy it the next day with no worries. The recipe calls for a lot of ginger which is known to aid n digestion and kill bacteria. The result is impressive and would make a wonderful appetizer for any dinner party that may be in your future! You can watch me make this delectable dish right now, RIGHT HERE.
