Sweet and Spicy Bacon Sticks

We had one of our best meals of the year a great new spot on Great Diamond Island off the coast of Maine. The Crown Jewel is truly that and if you are ever in the area be sure to boat out there and enjoy some spectacular food. Their sweet and spicy bacon was an inspiration to the old traditional bacon we have served for years at party after party.


  • 1 cup Sambai Sauce
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 pound thickly cut bacon from your butcher
  • Long bamboo skewers
  • Fresh rosemary

Making It

  • Whisk the Sambai Sauce with the sugar over a medium flame for 20 minutes, reducing by 1/3 to 1/2
  • Skewer the bacon, lay on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper then brush the sauce on the top side and bake at 400 degrees for toughly 20 minutes, then serve over a bed of rosemary
