Today’s recipe is for a Spicy Orange Sauce that I serve with diced chicken but you could substitute a white fish, shrimp or even sliced beef for the chicken.
Spicy Orange Sauce
½ orange rolled and slightly juiced with rind
½ lemon slightly juiced with rind
½ cup water
1 tablespoon minced green onion
1 clove crushed garlic
¼ teaspoon ginger powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of orange and lemon zest
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Stevia to taste
In a small saucepan add slightly juiced orange with rind and ½ lemon with rind to water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer adding water as needed. Simmer until the pulp comes out of the rinds. Scrape out the pulp and discard the rinds. Continue stirring and reducing down the liquid by half until desired consistency is reached. Add onion, stevia and spices. Add chicken, white fish or beef and sauté or pour spicy orange sauce over desired cooked protein. Serve with remaining orange slices for garnish.
I chose sauteed spinach as my side. I love spicy food so I sprinkled some dried red peppers on my spinach.
