Minimal ingredients does not mean that it is minimal in taste. The sweet chilli mellowed by the oyster sauce with the hint of sesame from the seeds made tonight's dinner very enjoyable. Paired with boiled noodles and broccoli this dinner wasn't as colourful as most Asian dishes but it was definitely a hit in our house.
