Five more ways to boost flavor


It may feel challenging, but it’s really very easy to spice up that broiled chicken breast or grilled fish. If your diet is in the doldrums, give these quick fixes a try.

Honey mustard and rosemary.

Buy premade honey mustard, your favorite brand. Add dry rosemary to it and let sit for 20 minutes. Brush the sauce on and grill or broil.

Ginger and orange.

Grate one teaspoon of fresh ginger and add one tablespoon of orange marmalade (low sugar variety if you can find it). Add a bit of salt to spike up the flavor and you have another fantastic marinade especially good for chicken.

Chipotle and lime.

For the brave, combine one tablespoon chopped chipotles canned in adobo sauce. Add to that one tablespoon of apricot preserves and one tablespoon of fresh-squeezed lime juice. Wonderful on chicken or salmon, especially on the grill.

Greek yogurt and curry.

Take two tablespoons of Greek yogurt and add one teaspoon of honey and the curry powder of your choice to taste. You could use mango chutney instead of honey for a taste adventure.

Miso and mirin.

Start with two teaspoons mirin (Japanese seasoning wine) and add a generous grind of black pepper plus one teaspoon miso – any color. Marinate for at least half and hour and grill. Excellent on any fish. Garnish with sliced scallion greens and sesame seed. Soba noodles make a wonderful side.

Make ahead and save in the fridge for a week. Some can even be made and poured into ice cube tray and frozen for future use.
