The Gorilla Man and The Empress of Steak & NOLA Goes Pink

Crystal Honey Sauce

1/2 cup Crystal hot sauce
1/4 cup honey

This recipe originates with Chef Darin Nesbit of the Bourbon House. Chef Darin tosses fried alligator in the sauce and serves it with blue cheese dressing for dipping, a la buffalo wings.

Bring the 1/2 cup Crystal hot sauce to a boil in a saucepan and boil until it has reduced in volume by half. Add the honey to the hot sauce, return to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook together for 10 minutes.

To use the sauce, toss in fried seafood (shrimp, oysters, frog's legs or alligator) or fried chicken wings and serve immediately.

This sauce may also be used as a basting sauce for pork or chicken.
