This Asian-style seafood dish is sweetened with a splash of fresh orange juice to balance out its heat.  By No means was it hot it was sweet and savory.   This is amazing and fresh tasting.  Best part is 2 cups was only 280 on calories and with some basmati rice to have with this made it a great satisfying meal.  Easy Clean up and about 20 minutes to prepare.  Ted and I agree it is a real winner!
