  • 2 Tablespoons Hot Sauce

  1. In small-size saucepan melt butter over a medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic. Sauté until softened. Add lime juice, tequila, hot sauce, kosher salt, and white pepper. Stir and let simmer 5 minutes. Remove about half of sauce and reserve for marinating. Add chicken broth to pan and bring to boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer until reduced by half. When ready, add cilantro to finish it off.
