If you want a great twist on a conventional side, this is the ticket. It is fresh, yummy, and very easy to make. It takes about 5 minutes. Total! Start to finish. The recipe calls for both snow peas and sugar snap. I did not have snow, so I skipped them, you can too. Use what you have. Seriously. I also did not have Mirin, but I did have rice wine, which is the same basic thing.
Anyway, I make this all the time, and one of my lovely readers asked for an easy side dish to mix things up. This was the first thing that popped in my mind! I hope you enjoy it!
