That is an absolutely sensational first time effort!

This was my firs wok cook. I just received the wok yesterday from TheWokShop in San Francisco. Baked it yesterday and cooked some scallions to char per seasoning instructions. I was nervous cooking this today, thought I was going to give forearms or eyebrows a clean shave. Got the fire up to 550-575F before I started cooking, next time I'm going to shoot for 625-650F and load the wok with a bit less of food, more batches.
Gorgeous work, and your comments above are spot on.
How long was the wok over the fire before you first started cooking?
Oh, and welcome to the obsession!
