    Maple Strawberry Shortcake without refined sugars

    Sterling Valley Maple Strawberry Shortcake

    Ingredients

    • 2 Cups Strawberries
    • ½ cup Sterling Valley Maple Granulated Maple Sugar
    • Store bought Angel Food Cake or Shortcake (or your favorite homemade recipe)

    Instructions

    The trick to making a great strawberry sauce is to add sugar and then freeze the strawberries overnight.  The freezing causes the individual cells of the strawberries to burst, releasing their sweet juices, and the sugar concentration induces osmosis to pull even more liquid from the strawberries.  Each strawberry is different, so add sugar to taste.

    For this recipe, we recommend using Sterling Valley Maple’s Certified Organic Granulated Maple Sugar.

    For the glaze: Mix Sterling Valley Maple Amber Color with Rich Taste Maple Syrup and sambal oelek together and set on the side.

     For the Salad: Mix the cucumber, tomato, pine nuts, couscous, feta cheese together. Dress with lemon juice and olive oil to taste. Add the mint and cilantro to this salad right before plating.

     For the fish: Preheat a broiler on high heat with an oven rack in the highest position Preheat an oven safe sauté pan over high heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Add your choice of cooking oil or butter to the pan and add the fish. Sear the fish on one side quickly. Turn the fish filet over. Brush with the glaze and place in the broiler.

     For Service: While the fish in the broiler, working quickly, arrange the salad as desired on your plate. When the fish is cooked to desired doneness, plate on top of the salad.

     Notes: This glaze is not overly spicy. If you desire more spice in glaze increase the amount of Sambal Oelek. The glaze should work nicely on grilled: shrimp, chicken breast and pork chops.
