One Dish Fish

I don't remember what this was called in the latest issue of Real Simple (May 08 I think) but it was really good and dish rhymes with fish so that's what I'm sticking with.
The only things I bought for this were the sugar snap peas and ginger, 2 things which I don't normally have on hand. I also didn't use long grain white rice, I only had short grain so I just used 2 cups of rice and the same amount of water.
A note about grated ginger. Fresh ginger does not grate well. I peeled it with a vegetable peeler and then got out my cheese grater and spent about 2 minutes making ginger slime which was useless. I then tried using my zester but that was a lost cause as well. I finally cut off thin slices and then diced them into little tiny squares. That worked just fine, it still tasted great.
I had it for leftovers at lunch this week and it didn't make the microwave or kitchen at the office smell like fish so go ahead and bring it to work with you, I already used my coworkers as guinea pigs on this one.
Here's the recipe
