Very tasty. My kids went crazy when they tried it. My husband said it was one of the best dishes I have ever made!

I doubled the snow peas called out in the recipe. It was delicious although not much orange flavor. I might try adding some OJ to the marinade next time. Also I think I would use a bit less peanut oil.

Change the white pepper to szechwan pepper. Serve with steamed bok choy
