   Notes from the Chef:
   “The suggested use for this is over cellophane noodles (cook using
   directions on package) mixed with 12 shredded scallions, 2 tbsp
   toasted sesame seeds (place un toasted ones in a dry frypan, and
   shake over moderate heat until lightly browned ) and a pound of
   cooked shrimp. However, I used a sesame chicken instead of the
   shrimp, and it came out well. Recipe for that follows.” - Ferd
