OKLAHOMA CITY- These recipes are among my favorites. The glaze is similar to what I served at Kyles1025, and is fantastic with salmon, as a ham glaze, or as a glaze or sauce for chicken breasts. The beverage is non alcoholic, and is the perfect light appetizer. Happy Easter!
Sweet Orange Dijon Glaze:
1 C brown sugar
3/4 C Dijon mustard
1/4 t Orange extract
Whisk together. May be brushed over ham; allow 45 minutes to an hour to caramelize. For chicken breasts or salmon, may be brushed over while grilling, may be broiled in oven 2-3 minutes or may be served as a sauce, drizzled over finished product.
Sparkling Tangerine Rosemary Cocktail:
1/4 C fresh squeezed tangerine juice (available packaged at Trader Joe’s, May substitute fresh squeezed orange juice)
3 T 7-Up or Sprite
2 T club soda or sparking water
1 T Rosemary Simple Syrup
Combine and stir, serve over ice.
Rosemary Simple Syrup:
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C water
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
