I know it’s hard when you are dieting to figure out new ways to eat that piece of chicken/fish for the 100th time. So I thought I would share one of my favorite sauce recipes.
Now, if you dont like garlic, ginger, or spicy things- don’t bother with this one.
-1tsp olive oil
-1 large Jalepeno.
-3 garlic cloves (I sometimes use more because I LOVE IT)
-Fresh Ginger (yes that weird root thing in the grocery store)
-2 large roma/plum tomatoes (Diced)
- 2 tbsp LIGHT soy sauce.
-1 packet of your choice of sugars (i use splenda).
Chop the Garlic, Ginger, And Jalepeno so that the chopped piles of each are roughly equal portions.
Place skillet on medium heat.
Add olive oil. Wait until oil is hot before adding garlic, jalepeno, ginger.
Fry for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Next, add the diced tomatoes.
Lastly, add soy/sugar.
Cook sauce down for approx. 5-6 minutes.
Sauce should be chunky and light, not soft and mushy.
This Sauce is Great with Chicken/Fish(like Tilapia).
Sometimes, I will pour the sauce over some raw tilapia, cover with foil, and bake it in the oven @ 400 degrees for approx. 25-30 minutes (or until fish is flaky).
This is Seriously the best sauce, that even my non-dieting boyfriend LOVES.
But watch out for the spicy kick.
