I kick up the sweetness quotient by adding honey and thin the sauce with lime juice for a bit of tang.

This quick glaze turns a simple piece of grilled or sautéed fish into something special. Brush it on as soon as the fish is cooked.

Makes 1/4 cup


  • 2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced or put through a press
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
  • Coarse salt


Stir the hoisin, lime juice, honey, garlic, and cilantro together in a small bowl. Season with salt.

This can sit on the counter for a couple of hours; or store it, covered, in the refrigerator for 3 days.
