I made this sauce this past weekend for a dinner party. I grilled some catfish and poured this sauce over it. I served it with white rice and wilted spinach and red bell peppers. It was AMAZING! I think next time I'm going to try and get some red fish and pan fry it to put the sauce over. Great work!
