3/30/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

I have been experimenting lately with how to add flavor to seafood or vegetables while adding no salt.  “The kitchen sink” approach has lead me toward some great flavors.

I added marsala wine to the last 45 seconds cook time when pan searing orange roughy and mahi mahi.  It made the liquid carmalize a bit and added a surprisingly light flavor.

Cook brussel sprouts and add 1 tablespoon sesame oil to al dente cooked and halved or shredded sprouts.  In the last 45 seconds, I added 1 teaspoon sesame seeds to allow them to toast with the veggies.  Delicious and nutty.

Try simmering minced shallots in a few teaspoons of sherry vinegar, starting off with butter flavored Pam cooking spray.  Serve on top of chicken or green beans for an ‘evening out’ kind of feel.

I use white rice vinegar which is light and mild as a marinade.  Add pineapple chunks and soy to chicken or salmon chunks.

Of course, I add balsamic vinegar or glaze to anything.  Salads, veggies, seafood (not so much with beef, but I don’t eat beef as much anymore).  I love it!
