    MinatheBrat's Note:

    This is a very quick and easy stir-fry to put together. I'm rather partial to lemon curd, so anything with lemon curd is great to me! For those who don't know, lemon curd is a custard-like sauce/jam? made with eggs, lemon juice and zest, sugar, and butter. It's fantastic on toast in the morning, and comes in handy in the kitchen as an ingredient. In this particular recipe, it helps create a lemony sweet-and-sour sauce that can be tweaked to be more sweet or more sour depending on your taste. I also love to use lemon curd as a part in making a more traditional sweet-and-sour sauce.- yum!
