Spicy Honey-Sesame Glaze:

  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the glaze ingredients (start with 1 teaspoon chili sauce and add more to taste).
  2. Bring the glaze to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring often and reducing heat as necessary. Simmer until the glaze is reduced by about half (about 5 to 10 minutes; it’s about done when it starts bubbling up substantially). Remove the glaze from the heat and set aside.
  3. This sauce can also be eaten cold.
