Crispy Coated Honey Baked Ham Recipe

You can also do that, if you have the budget.

All you will need is to get that perfect spicy honey baked flavor and then use a blowtorch to make the coating very crispy.

Whiskey and Honey Baked Ham Recipe
This is a little naughtier version of the honey baked ham, naughtier because you are going to have to add some whiskey into the honey and the rest of the ingredients. Though the alcohol that was in the whiskey will eventually evaporate as you cook the ham, the flavor is left behind and that’s what makes this dish enticingly delicious.
Easy Lobster Tails In Foil
Decadent lobster is usually saved for special occasions like Christmas. This dish is so easy to prepare that you can make it at any time of the year.

Manually loosen the meat from the shell, sprinkle with the seasonings and then foil-wrap each tail. Bake and serve. For 4 to 8 ounces of tail, it may take 25 minutes, for larger tails, it may take half an hour.
Baked Large Snapper
There is nothing more delicious to serve for Christmas dinner than a completely fresh fish baked on a barbeque or baked in an oven. A red snapper is perhaps the perfect fish for making such a dish. With a 3 kilogram snapper, you can easily feed the family with something unique that is heavenly delicious at the same time.
Hopefully, these sizzling Christmas dishes will inspire you to be very creative in your preparations for you family’s Christmas dinner this year.
