I am so excited to share this recipe with you – even more excited than usual! Is your mouthwatering at the title – Orange Mango Braised Fish with Lime Coconut Quinoa? Doesn’t that sound amazing? Doesn’t it sound like something you’d want to eat while sitting at a beachside restaurant on a warm, breezy night? That’s totally the feeling I was going for here. A few weeks ago Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice contacted me about partnering with them to create a unique recipe using one of their award-winning juices. I hopped over and took a look at the Natalie’s website to read more about the company. I was really impressed with what I read about the company and their dedication to providing an extraordinary product. I decided I needed to try this juice as soon as possible, so I readily said I’d love to work with them.
Natalie’s sent me samples of all of their juices to try. And that has been amazingly fun. Imagine you’re my kids and you come home from school, open the fridge to get a snack, and there are a bazillion bottles of citrus juice staring back at you. We have all been in heaven!
Before I get to the recipe, I want to give you a little background info on Natalie’s because I love their story! The Sexton family lives in Florida. They are fourth generation citrus farmers. For sometime, the family had been wanting to sell juice squeezed fresh from the fruit in their citrus groves, but there just wasn’t enough time to make it happen. Marygrace Sexton decided to make her husband’s dream a reality. She named the company after her daughter, Natalie. Today the company is run by Marygrace and her daughters. (Hooray for women-owned businesses!) They produce numerous varieties of juice that are sold in 30 U.S. states and 24 countries worldwide.
