What a delightful dish! The only thing I did different was add some quartered fresh button mushrooms...otherwise it was all yours. I served it over jasmine rice. Very easy to prepare, looked fantastic, and tasted even better!! I agree that it is very light and fresh tasting. Would make for a really nice dinner on the patio on a warm summer night. Thanks for this great recipe :)

This recipe jumped out at me and I had to try it for Saturday night's dinner. The colorful combination of red peppers with the snow peas made it that much more appealing. The lemon-y sauce was an excellent topping. My wife throroughly enjoyed it, and this recipe will be a regular in our home. Thanks, Diana!
