San-J 3-Step Stir-fry

Makes 4 servings


Choose 1 pound of protein. Cubed tempeh, sliced chicken breast, thin-sliced beef…whatever works for you!


Next, gather 4 cups of vegetables. We like bell peppers, snow peas, carrots, onions, and broccoli—just to name a few.


Stir-fry protein and veggies with 3/4 cup of San-J Asian Cooking Sauce. Choose from 8 certified gluten-free flavors like our new Hoisin, Thai Peanut, Teriyaki, and Szechuan. Serve with prepared rice, gluten-free grain, or rice noodles.

Serves 4



1 pound               Salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 Tablespoons    Grapeseed oil, or any high-heat oil such as canola or peanut oil

2 cups                   Fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 cup                     Canned sliced water chestnuts, drained

1 cup                     Green onions, sliced diagonally into 1-inch pieces

3/4 cup                 San-J Orange Sauce



In a large frying pan or a wok, heat oil over high heat.

Add the salmon and sauté for about 2 minutes or until the salmon is lightly browned but not entirely cooked through. Add the vegetables and sauté for about 2-3 minutes. Pour the San-J Orange Sauce into the pan and cook, occasionally stirring gently, for about 3-5 more minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and asparagus is crisp tender.

Serve with glass noodles.
