  • 2 tablespoons canola, sunflower or peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 3 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 ripe plums (your favorite variety), pitted and sliced

Cooking sauce

  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sherry wine (medium dry)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot chile sesame oil (optional)


Heat the oil in a sauté pan or wok over medium heat and add the ginger and garlic. Stir fry for about 30 seconds. Turn up the heat to medium-high and add the peppers, plums and green onions. Cook for about 2 minutes more until the plums are crisp tender and the onions are jade green.

Stir in the cooking sauce and bring to a simmer, stirring gently, until the sauce thickens slightly and is bubbly. Serve immediately over grilled or roasted chicken, fish or steamed rice.
