This is an easy stir fry that is great to accompany salmon or other fish. Also a great main dish if doubled and served with white rice. Delicious as a side dish for Teriyaki Ginger Salmon.

Didn't have the peanut or sesame oils. Hubby snarfed it down before I even got some. I used toasted sesame seeds at the end instead of the sesame oil and used plain old vegetable oil for the saute. It was yummmy! Especially the mushrooms. Be SUPER careful not to burn the ginger and garlic. It almost burned on me in about 15 seconds..nothing more bitter than burned garlic.. I also reduced the sugar considerably. Think it would have been better with the little bit extra the recipe calls for. Thank you for a great side dish.

This was wonderful! The flavor of the ginger was so delicious and went so well with the snow peas and the mushrooms. This was so vibrant too - absolutely fantastic. Easy & quick too.
