This flavorful drizzle pairs perfectly with pan-seared pork tenderloin medallions, but also works well with grilled chicken, shrimp, or salmon. The sauce has a zippy, memorable flavor that transforms seemingly plain protein into a culinary sensation. Cook the sauce briefly to reduce it so that it isn't too thin; you don't want this flavor running around your plate. However you use the sauce, serve a side of crusty bread so as not to miss a single drop. For an Asian-inspired salad, thin the sauce slightly with olive oil to serve as a dressing on a bed of greens with matchstick carrots. 

How to Make It

Melt butter in a small, heavy saucepan over medium. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant but not browned, about 30 seconds. Add lime juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, and red pepper; stir to combine, and bring to a simmer. Stir together 1 teaspoon water and cornstarch in a small bowl; add to sauce. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
