My dad can't eat alot of sodium or soy products of any kind, so stir frys are pretty much out of the question. This recipe gives you that same flavor of stir fry without all of the sodium and calories. This recipe has a perfect proportion of calories, carbs, proteins, and fats!

Sodium Free Season mix
Create this to your own taste
Garlic Powder Gives somewhat of a salt taste
So if you like salt but need to limit sodium intake this works well.

Mojo is a garlic based sauce similar to piccata sauce. The same recipe makes the sauce (served with the meat) and, with addition of more orange juice, the marinade for the meat before cooking.
