Introduction: Firecracker sauce toes the line in between buffalo sauce and teriyaki. It thickens and glazes whatever you put it on while it cooks– and it is so easy to make. We like this kind of sticky, abundant sauce on eggplant however if that’s not your preferred, you can brush it on fish, steak or other grilled veggies. It’s exceptional on chicken wings too!

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup hot sauce (like Frank’s Red Hot)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 Tablespoon soy sauce

2 Tablespoons white or red white wine vinegar

2 Tablespoons saltless butter

1-2 big eggplant, any range!

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoon canola oil




Location it in a little pan. Include hot sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, and vinegar. Give a simmer and blend up until smooth; simmer for about 7 minutes, or up until it’s somewhat thickened. Shut off the heat, include butter and blend up until it’s melted.


Dice the eggplant into big cubes or long strips. Position them on a paper or foil lined baking sheet and set up in one layer. Sprinkle with salt and toss with the oil. Bake for about 14 minutes, stopping to stir as soon as midway through. When the eggplant is soft throughout, golden brown, and all set to consume, get rid of from the oven and kindly spoon the sauce over top. Toss to coat. Go back to the oven for 4-5 minutes up until glazed and sticky.

Any additional sauce will keep for weeks in the refrigerator.

Make sure, the sauce will burn! (Whatever you utilize the sauce on ought to be prepared initially, then glazed with the sauce) Delicious over rice or with a veggie slaw!
