Rich information, that’s really good, I’m looking for it, thanks for sharing.
Thanks you! So glad you enjoyed it.
Would you say substituting the pecans for walnuts or cashews would work? Or would it completely change the flavor combos? Thanks!
I haven’t recipe tested the sauce with any nut but pecans, but I think it would work just fine. Sure it would alter the flavor a little, but it would still be very delicious Rebecca!
I made this to put on top of pork chops.. AMAZING!! It is giving food I’ve grown bored with so much flavor!! It was super easy to make and had the easiest cleanup.
I am so glad you liked my orange parsley sauce Jody! I am so glad it helped enhance the flavor of your pork chops! I love it when a simple sauce can really make the flavors of a meal just pop!
So delicious and easy. I used this sauce as a baste and side sauce with grilled salmon. The flavor profile was perfect with salmon. I brushed it over the top of my salmon before grilling and then served it on the side. So bright and fresh perfect for spring or anytime.
I am so happy you liked my salmon Joan! I am so glad it turned out delicious and easy to make. That is music to my ears. I loved all the tips you shared. Thanks so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it!
ate this on crispy roast duck & it was fantastic! we have 1/2 a jar left in the fridge & i’m trying to figure out what to put it on next.
Oh my the orange parsley sauce would be fantastic on duck Jessica! Yum! I’ll have to try that.
Made this tonight to go with our steak! I was following one of your meal plan weeks and it called for this as a sauce. It was delicious over steak. You don’t need a lot of it though. I like parsley but I only need a little bit to enjoy it. Super easy sauce to make. I used my nutribullet to mix it. Still haven’t invested in a good processed. My nutribullet usually does the trick. Thanks for posting and sharing the recipe!
