This looks amazing! Going to try it this weekend, do you have a print option?
Yes I do Doris. If you go to the recipe card you should see the pink button that says print recipe 🙂
Hi, we have a sesame allergy in the family, but I’d love to make this for a weekend BBQ. Would olive oil work as a replacement for sesame oil or do you have another suggestion? Thanks so much!
I have the sesame oil in there for the deep and rich flavour, but you could totally try olive oil 🙂
We loved this, and will make it again. I didnt have parsley so used the tender stem and leaves of celery. And forgot the feta. Didnt need it.
Delicious as is
