Pro tip for meal prep

You can make everything in advance to get this done even faster. Everything except for one thing:

If you use the fresh basil, I recommend to add it after reheating. Simply because basil tends to loose flavor and texture if used in advance.

Hi there! I'm excited to try this recipe. I noticed that in the list of ingredients it calls for sesame oil, but in the instructions it uses peanut oil. Which would be best for this dish?
