Well Kari, I made this as promised, and it was great! I scaled the recipe down to serve 1 (me) and made it for dinner tonight. I used olive oil instead of butter, half a fresh Thai Birdseye Chilli instead of dry flakes, and I reduced the sauce again after I added the juice and honey etc. Tonight I ate it with roasted potatoes, garlic mushrooms, baby peas and an Australian reisling. I wish you could have shared it with me!
