Good to Know

Bring the bourbon from the bar and into the kitchen. The rich flavor of the bourbon brings out both the saltiness of the soy sauce and the sweetness of the brown sugar. For those following a heart-healthy diet, the omega-3 fatty acids and low sodium in this dish make it a health no-brainer.
