Red pepper flakes, ginger and garlic lend a spicy touch to this seafood stir-fry. Pea pods, carrots and Chinese cabbage give the dish a fresh taste that's more than welcomed as the season changes. -The L&T Home Economists

"I have been making this for several years. It is a favorite of DH and DD (and I like it, too, of course). Rarely really change anything other than increasing the amount of peas, if I have them. Used agave nectar instead of honey last time I made it (because I came across it first - no other reason)."
