Grilled rack of lamb chops rubbed with garlic and rosemary, potato/fennel gratin topped with gruyere and swiss chard sauted quickly in just a bit of olive oil infused with garlic and red pepper flakes. It was so good and Craig grilled the rack to perfection.

So, bought a cookbook and wing it on my own. You'll see many different spellings (my two cookbooks spell it differently) because it's a transliteration, so whoever is writing the cookbook (or menu) spells it how it sounds to them.

Thank you all. I was very happy with the sauce this time. It was a nice sweet and sour balance. I used a table/soup spoon to measure this time NOT a measuring "tablespoon". The flavor was just right and just the right thickness.

Thank you Vit. I also gave the rice a splash of toasted sesame oil and a few drops of (spicy hot) chili sesame oil after I took the picture.

BTW I am east coast born and bred.
