I think this recipe needs a fair review. See, taste buds on your tongue vary from person to person, which means that what may taste good to some people may not taste good to others. You should t...

Didn't taste a thing like Szechwan, but it was alright, and my husband liked it! I used 1 tbsp sesame oil instead of 3 tbsp olive oil and added 1 tbsp soy sauce because the flavors were too sh...
