It was delicious and easy to prepare....couldn't find the snow peas and used parsley instead of cilantro (that's what I had)...very good!!

This recipe was great! I made it for myself and my boyfriend and served it with a 1/2 cup of brown rice. I was a bit skeptical about the amount of onions, ginger, and cilantro - but it was perfect. Oh, and I used less peas and added some red pepper instead. YUMM!
