The Asian-style marinade adds lots of extra flavor and uses both orange & lime juices. Prep time does not include 1-hour marinating time. This was published in our local newspaper and made for lunch today! You might enjoy boiling and thickening the marinade to use as a dipping sauce. I'm also publishing the sides that were suggested - Golden Jeweled Rice and (steamed asparagus with) Citrus Sauce.

This really deserves more stars than five. It was very easy and just delicious. My husband raved. I used regular soy sauce instead of reduced sodium, and olive oil instead of sesame oil (which I didn't have). A zillion thanks -- and a zillion stars!

- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh orange juice or 1⁄2 tablespoon prepared orange juice
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1⁄2 tablespoon prepared Chinese mustard
