    Scott Rhoades's Note:

    Easy sauce for vegetables, chicken, or fish. I originally developed this recipe as a topping for fresh steamed broccoli but found it works well with a variety of foods. I get the tangerine juice from Walmart but other large grocery stores and natural food markets should carry it. For a slightly different flavor try mandarin orange juice.

      I thoroughly enjoyed this on steamed broccoli. The zesty citrus flavor went perfectly on the broccoli. I'm definitely going to try it on chicken.

      Our family did not enjoy this. Contrary to the other reviewer, we did not like the zingy flavor it added to broccoli. I have a similar orange sauce recipe for beets or carrots, but it offers a subtle, sweet flavor instead with the addition of just a little sugar. We'll stick to that recipe.
