So fast and easy for a weeknight dish, it only takes 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Give it a try, I think you will really like it,

This recipe is from that book and it is one of our "go to" recipes when we fancy a chinese meal at home.
Serve this with our Hot and Sour soup as a first course.
