INDIANIZED Honey Barbecue SAUCE
a little kitchen help, especially in the summer!
½ cup honey, preferably wildflower
¼ cup Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons fresh thyme (or ½ tsp. dried)
1 teaspoon Indian-style curry paste *
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
In a small saucepan, whisk together honey, mustard, thyme, curry paste, salt and water. Bring to a low simmer over medium heat and drizzle oil in slowly, whisking to incorporate. Pour into a clean jar, allow to cool thoroughly, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Sauce will keep for several weeks refrigerated; stir or shake well before using.
Yield: Makes 1½ cups barbecue sauce.
*Indian-style curry paste, which is red, can be found in the ethnic foods section at many supermarkets. This high-sugar finishing glaze works well for chicken, pork tenderloin, swordfish, beef kebabs and baby-back ribs. It can also be brushed on mushroom caps or split ripe figs before grilling or broiling, or used as a dipping sauce for grilled skewered chicken.
