Honey Almond Grilling Glaze
11 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoon flour
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoon prudhomme's seafood magic
1 cup celery; chopped
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon fresh lemon peel; grated
1 cup chicken stock
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In small saucepan over medium heat, melt 3 tbls butter. Whisk in flour until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside. In 10" skillet over high heat, melt remaining 8 tbls butter. When it comes to a hard sizzle, add almonds, Seafood Magic and celery.

Cook, stirring frequently at first and constantly near end of cooking time, about 8 minutes or until almonds are browned. Stir in honey and cook, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Stir in lemon peel and stock. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Add nutmeg; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Whisk in reserved butter mixture until it is incorporated and sauce is slightly thickened, 30-60 seconds. Remove from heat.

NOTE: Excellant on grilled seafood, chicken or pork. Brush it on right before meat is ready to come off the grill and bring some to the table for dipping.
