Really good and a great fast dinner that we loved. Made as directed and it's definitely not bland but not too spicy either. I wonder if the original recipe called for fresh or bottled ginger, ground seems a bit out of place. I love Cooking Light recipe, thanks for sharing!Made for PAC Spring 2009.
This was very yummy but for those of you that do not like spicy foods try adding 1 tablespoon of sriracha sauce. I love spicy food and the two tablespoons was just right.
