These things are so good people swipe the plate with their fingers when they think no one is looking. The key is the Szechuan peppercorns, which are like fun little spice bombs. They’r not all that hot, just packed with flavor.
I got this recipe from Taste and chef Stephanie Izard. She really deserves all the credit.
If your event is 1 to 2 hours (house warming, home marketing event, short happy hour) then the small party portion is what you need.
If your event is 3 or more hours (a party for parties sake, a birthday, St. Patricks, the Oscars) then you want the “meal” portion.
