The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a super simple sauce to make and so versatile. It can be served on chicken, beef, pork, or almost any seafood that has a stronger flavor, such as salmon, tuna, or shrimp.

The key to this recipe is to make it just before you are ready to serve your meal. Assemble all the ingredients and then make the sauce while your meat or fish is roasting or grilling. Don't overheat the sauce or it will split and become grainy.
