Hoisin sauce is a staple of Chinese cooking, prepared with soybeans, garlic, chile peppers, and spices. It adds a flavorful, authentic Asian touch to numerous dishes and pairs especially well with salmon and can be bought in most grocery stores these days in the Asian cooking aisle. Hoisin paired with orange juice and honey adds a sweetness to the marinade, which the kids will just love. If you need to make dinner in a pinch this is your answer — just ask Red Tricycle’s Managing Editor who makes this dish every time time is tight and bellies are hungry.
