Ed’s Caribbean Fish Sauce

My husband loves to cook and when he creates it's usually very different and outstanding. He created this sauce for grilled Cobia (Lemonfish) the weekend we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. It would be great for any firm meated fish or even grilled chicken.

awesome recipe! My S.O. loved this on fish, and he usually won't even touch fish. The leftover sauce went great on some steamed broccoli.

WOW! Great flavors! I served it with grilled Mahi Mahi and rice. I had seconds on rice to use up the rest of the sauce! I think this would be great on chicken and even grilled pork! Made for Fall 2007 PAC.
