On the southern Caribbean island of Bonaire where we lived for 7 years, this popular,delicious sauce was often served with the "catch of the day," hot rice, and fried plaintains (large cooking bananas.) Follow the recipe or be creative! A wonderful compliment for any grilled meat!

A really delicious sauce, perfect over rice. I made it without the butter and it was still great; we had it over bowls of brown rice and tofu.
