So, I’ve been remiss in writing lately. For some reason, I can’t put pen to paper. Or fingers to keyboard. I don’t get it, but there it is. I also haven’t posted a recipe for a while either. This is one that I made up today, and I really liked it. I was riffing off of a marinade recipe that I saw somewhere. I turned it into a glaze that really has potential on a number of things. I used it on pulled chicken and tomato wedges, served over couscous, but I can see its potential on many things
Lemon Lime Surprise (The surprise is how good this tastes!)
Juice and zest of one lemon
Juice and zest of one lime
1 Tablespoon (or so) honey
1-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons (or so) minced garlic
The measurements are really guidelines. I wasn’t planning for posterity when I was cooking, so I was really loosy goosey.
Mix all together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid reduces to glaze-like consistency. (Taste at some point before it reduces all the way, to make sure the honey and the citrus are balanced. I needed to add a touch more honey.) Add whatever you are glazing towards the end.
This made enough for me to glaze 2 servings of pulled chicken with some tomato wedges. It seems that it should be scalable to whatever size you need.
Boy was this tasty!
