I think I might try the chicken option.

I used more chilli and dark soy sauce instead. Served with noodles with a bit of spring onion and finely sliced peppers in... everyone loved it

This has become an all-time favourite in our house and anyone else we've passed it on to - so quick and easy to make but bursting with yummy flavours. Especially nice with some king prawns added in too to make it a bit more special.

I didn't hav efresh ginger or chillis but used 1/2 tsp of ground ginger and 1/2 large dried chilli. I used a small leek instead of the spring onions because i didn't have any. Still tasted very nice.
