Chef's Note

*You can find chili oil in supermarkets and Asian specialty shops. Otherwise, marinate a pinch of chili powder in a little olive oil and strain.

**Radish seedlings or sprouts are sold in little baskets. If you can't find them, substitute another delicate flavorful green sprout or replace them with a few leaves of lamb's lettuce.
