    Only 10 calories in the sugar free apricot preserves. and only 10mg of salt in the liquid smoke. It's a beautiful thing! You can omit the olive oil if you want to eliminate all fat.


    • 1/4 cup Basalmic Vinegar, 2T Lite Soy Sauce, 1/2 T Sugarfree Apricot Preserves, Bunch of Cilantro leaves-either chopped or just thrown in. 1/4 cup Red Onion-sliced lengthwise or diced. 1/2 tsp. freshly grated ginger, 1/2 tsp or a few shakes of powdered ginger, a pinch of red pepper flakes, cayenne, or freshly grated pepper. 1/4 cup of water, 3 drops of Liquid Smoke.


    1. 1. In a small pot (one that you would thow soup in) Add all ingredients except for olive oil. Turn stove onto lowest setting and simmer while stirring for about 5 minutes. 2. Remove from stove and pour in a separate dish to cool. Place in fridge, covered with plastic wrap until completely cooled and ready to use. 3.Pour marinade over chicken breast or salmon, or anything in a ziplock bag. Marinade chicken for at least 4 hours. Marinade fish for 20 minutes. 4. Place protein on a pam sprayed piece of foil and pour all marinade over. Close foil all around to create a pouch. In 400 degree oven, cook 6oz piece of salmon for 10 minutes then open pouch to expose salmon and broil on low for five more minutes. For chicken, 375 oven, 15 minutes and 3 to broil when opening pouch.
