  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

  3. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onion and serve.

Cook's Note:

To speed up meal preparation, use garlic and ginger paste (such as Gourmet Garden® which you can find in the produce section of the supermarket) and frozen chopped onion.
