"This delicious rice dish, created by my son Dan, goes great with many Asian inspired dishes. I especially like it with my recipe for Linda's Asian Salmon. You can cut the recipe in half for 2 people without any problems. I have made this for 2 people and use 1 tsp. chili paste. It is spicy, but not "Real Hot". This rice has lots of flavor! I served with Sweet Soy Sauce Drizzled over the top of the rice as shown in my picture. Preparation time DOES NOT include time to cook rice. You should be able to find all these ingredients in the Asian or International section of your grocery store. If not, try the closest Asian Market or order online."
