Here’s one of those recipes that results when there’s nothing in the fridge. A few simple ingredients thrown together to create a tasty citrus glaze saved us from a boring dinner one night last week.

The sauce is very simple and reminds me of teriyaki sauce but with a little more sweetness and warm, not hot, spice flavours. It’s a simple delicious combination.

This is one I’ll make again.

I just made your orange stir fried pork which was absolutely delicious. Had to hurry, so the sauce was not as thick as it should have been. I was thinking of using the leftover sauce on salmon tomorrow. You have that covered already. Thanks gor the great recipes.
