Ponzu is a soy and citrus sauce popular in Japanese cooking. Use it to dress up simple vegetable and rice dishes, or use it as a sauce for stir-fries. Make this dish in the spring when snow peas and cilantro are in season. Brown rice noodles can be found in most grocery stores, natural food stores, or online.

Where’s the recipe for the ponzu sauce. Can’t make it w/o the sauce. The dish is all about the sauce! Why did you not include the recipe and waste my time???

Ponzu sauce can be found in a bottle in the Asian foods aisle of the supermarket, near the soy sauce. :-)

Love, love, love this dish. So light and flavorful. I use Maifun brown rice noodles. They are thinner but make the dish so light.
