Tropical Citrus Sauce

This sauce uses the technique of a stir fry sauce, which makes it easy to put together. Mango juice is used, but feel free to put your own spin if necessary, by using pineapple or even orange juice.

Curry powder gives a boost of flavor to this simple sauce along with crushed red pepper for a little heat.

This sauce can also be used as a glaze on chicken, seafood, or as a dipping sauce.
