Oh so sweet…and no doubt spicy.
“Oh so sweet” honey and the “big time heat” habanero pepper may not first come to mind as a pairing for a marinade or dipping sauce, but the two actually work quite well together! This honey habanero sauce recipe adds a little twist of tang through the addition of pineapple and cider vinegar. It’s excellent as a BBQ shrimp or chicken glaze or as a sweet dipping sauce with a big time kick.
Honey Habanero Sauce
In a pan over low heat, heat the pineapple, garlic, ginger powder, and lemon juice, stirring frequently for 1 to 2 minutes (or until the pineapple becomes soft).
Add the honey, habanero pepper, and vinegar and continue to heat for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and place the mix into a blender. Pulse blend to desired thickness.
For best taste, let sauce sit for a minimum of 30 minutes for flavors to set.
