DID YOU KNOW

that Asian oyster sauce, which is made from boiled oysters, doesn't have a fishy flavour? There are many vegetarian brands on the market made from mushrooms that can be used with equal success.

Great taste! Great way of getting vegies into the boyfriend! I used red cabbage instead of eggplant to get the same colour (not an eggplant fan). Great on the side of crumbed fish - 27 Jul 2010

I doubled the amount of sauce as suggested, and it worked really well. - 29 Jan 2014

Very nice recipe, thanks. I might double the amount of sauce next time as it was so nice. Oh and I added some torn up mint with the basil...great. - 22 May 2013
