      DH and I really enjoyed this light meal. I left out the bean sprouts (personal prefrence) and used snow peas. I did add a little lime juice as other suggested and it really did brighten up the dish! Thanks for posting! [Made for PRMR Tag February 2010]

      We enjoyed this for lunch today. I do wish I had taken lindseylcw suggestion and added some cilantro and lime juice. It just needs something to give it a wow and I think that would have done it. Or maybe some pepper flakes. I guess I will just have to make it again. Thanks for posting. I did get 3 good size servings. :)

      This is a very nice, fresh tasting dish. I added some fresh coriander (I just love it)and a spritz of fresh lime juice before serving and it really seemed to pick the dish up. Will definately make again thanks Noo. Made for zaar tag.
