Shogun Orange Juice is a beverage.  Made in Thailand by the company Tipco.

Not knowing what to expect, perhaps anticipating some bitterness, like grapefruit, I bought it, if only for the novelty, both the unusual nature of the fruit itself and its Thai origins.

Initially, tonight’s dish had been envisioned as a simple sauté of salmon and skin and chick peas over baby greens – sans sauce.  Everything was plated and ready to eat.  But then, as I was pouring the juice to serve with the food, I tried it for the first time.   It was sweeter/denser than standard orange juice, like it had been extracted from overripe tangerines.  That gave me the idea of intensifying the taste and texture even further by pouring a bit into the pan along with some fish sauce and reducing it to a glaze.  Not bad.
