I came up with this recipe for a luau-themed party and served it with sliced papaya, mango and avocado. Delish! If you don't care for coconut, sprinkle with chopped macadamia nuts instead. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

"Good quick stir fry in the sweet ‘n sour family. I may add a bit more orange juice next time to let the orange flavor shine through a bit more."
