Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Harissa dry spice

  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  1. Preheat oven to 400?F. In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Continue cooking until bubbling has subsided and butter has just started to turn brown at the bottom; remove from heat and pour into large bowl, including the browned bits at the bottom of the pan. Cool slightly. Stir in honey, garlic, salt, pepper, and harissa. Reserve 1/4 cup of mixture for serving.
