Spicy Tomato Glaze

Recipe from


Ingredients

1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chilies in adobo sauce or 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

Combine the ingredients in a small bowl.

Cook 2 pounds of poultry, meat, seafood, or vegetables on a lightly oiled grill.

When the food has 5 to 10 minutes left to cook, baste it with the glaze and turn it frequently to create a glossy crust.

Tips: Glazes make great dipping sauces to serve at the table along with your food. Simply make a little extra and set aside before grilling.

Resist the urge to apply a glaze early in the cooking process: The sugars in the sauce will burn before the food cooks through.

Best With: Turkey cutlets, bone-in chicken pieces, burgers, and salmon.
