2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup peanut oil

2 tablespoons mirin 

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus more for seasoning

Pinch sugar 

Sea salt

Freshly ground white pepper

Directions

  1. Combine the cilantro, serrano and cayenne peppers, ginger and scallions in a food processor and pulse to a pesto consistency. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
