This recipe was passed on to me. I love it!!!

P.S. I found Nakano seasoned rice vinegar in the vinegar section, sometimes it's hard to find. It can be used with lots of recipes.

I halved it for two; worked out great. My husband thought it was a little too "hot" but I really liked it! (I'll adjust the seasonings next time so it's not as hot.)
