This exotic combination pools such Asian ingredients as Chinese won ton skins, Thai peanut sauce and Japanese fresh edamame in an open-faced "sandwich" that works well as a light lunch or supper. The won ton skins brown within seconds, so avoid overcooking them. An accompaniment of seasoned noodles followed by fresh fruit and fortune cookies for dessert complete the menu.
