  • Summary

    Using gluten-free tamari will make this orange marinade gluten-free and paleo friendly. But, you can always use regular soy sauce or Braggs liquid aminos for the same salty flavor if gluten isn't a concern. And grilling orange slices adds an extra sweetness and caramelization to the finished dish.
