1 teaspoon canola oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots, (1 medium)
1½ teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1 cup orange juice, (from 2-3 oranges)
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar, or rice-wine vinegar
1½ teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, or scallion greens
Heat oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add sesame seeds and stir until lightly toasted, about 20 seconds. Add shallots and stir until softened, about 1 minute. Add zest and juice, vinegar and soy sauce. Simmer until reduced to ½ cup, about 6 minutes. Stir in chives (or scallion greens).
People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
