Citrus Glaze Cooking tips:

Be careful not to get any of the white parts of the lime or orange. It’s very bitter and can ruin the sauce.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: After the glaze cools, transfer to an airtight container. Keep in fridge for 1 month max.

Reheating: Turn on heat to medium, in a small or medium sauce pan, add glaze, cook until mixture starts to boil. About 5 minutes or less.
