Ed’s Caribbean Fish Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

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.
