I was reading Curry and Comfort this afternoon and came across her Maple and Orange sticky chicken recipe.
It was already past 4 in the afternoon which meant that i no longer had the time to send Ate Sonya out to the to the nearest supermarket to get me the ingredients that i needed so i figured why not make my own version and base it from her recipe.
I have been having early dinners since i became a mom as Ysabela usually sleeps at 6:30pm and since she's breast fed, i had to adjust my time to accomodate her feeding time.
I didn't have chicken and orange marmalade so I decided to use a fillet of cream dory and pineapple jam
For the marinade
4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce (kikoman light)
4 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp pineapple jam or marmalade
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
dash of chinese 5 spice powder
dash of garlic powder
dash or two of paprika
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
1 tbsp of minced garlic
1 tsp chili flakes
For the Brocolli in Coconut Cream Sauce
sautee 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 tbsp chopped onions, 1 tbsp ginger in 2 tbsp canola oil.
add the coconut milk and season with salt and pepper
let the milk reduce and then add the broccoli and let simmer
until the broccoli is cooked.
|mix all ingredients in a bowl|
|in a ziplock bag marinate the fish or protein of your choice for at least an hour|
|line a baking sheet with foil and bake in the oven at 300F for 12-18 minutes or until the fish becomes flaky|
|yummy with rice and veggies, i had brocolli in coconut cream|
