• Zesty Tangerine Sauce

    Zesty Tangerine Sauce | stupideasypaleo.com

    This is a really simple recipe that would be great on salmon or chicken and adds a great tang and slight sweetness. If you can’t find tangerines, oranges would be a great substitute. Using the zest guarantees more flavor than using just juice alone.

    Zesty Tangerine Sauce
    • Juice of 3 large tangerines (about ½ cup)
    • Zest of 2 tangerines
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 Tablespoon of ghee (sub coconut oil)
    • Pinch of salt
    1. Add all the ingredients in a small saucepan.
    2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then turn to low and reduce until ~1/4 cup of liquid remains. You want the sauce to be slightly thickened.
    3. Serve over your cooked protein of choice.

    Pin this for later!

    1. This sauce sounds great! I am always looking for new sauces to help add variety to the ever ubiquitous chicken breast 🙂 Due to weight-loss goals, I am doing low-carb paleo (no fruit except lemon), so I was wondering if I could substitute lemon juice instead? I know that it won’t be sweet anymore, but do you think the sauce would be completely ruined by using lemon juice instead? Maybe I could add a couple of drops of Stevia to sweeten it up. I am new to cooking, so I would love the opinion of an expert!

      1. Awwwww Helen! Thank you so much for the very kind words 🙂 This is one of my favorite sauces, and I love what you paired it with. YUM!
