When the month of May finally arrives, we start getting tired of all the rich and heavy winter dishes and start craving something fresh. Ponzu sauce can add so much to the simplest dish to give it fresh flavor you have been longing for since last spring! In this stir fry, it adds a citrusy flavor to the stir fry, which brings out the other flavor components of the fish very well. Enjoy!
