    Adapted from Simply Recipes. Prep time doesn't include marinating. High heat is used for this recipe because it is a stir fry of sorts.

      As with so many Asian inspired dishes, it's all in the preparation, get everything ready beforehand and the dish itself is prepared in a flash. We loved this, especially my younger daughter who is very hard to please, this got a huge thumbs up. The sweet and tangy combination of flvours is spot-on, and the sauce has an excellent coating quality. I served this on steamed white rice, garnished with spring onions, an excellent supper, very much enjoyed. This recipe was made in fond remembrance of Papa D, one of the greats.
