A great 10 star recipe, full of taste and pow! I upped the jalapeno a bit, because we love spicy here, and this was totally wonderful both in taste, and as pretty as a button to serve for company. Mango's are just so darn delish, this really is such a balanced taste, perfect in every way! Thanks, Sharon! Made for ZWT7
This has a very different sauce than I am used to using on fish, but it is very tasty. Next time I will up the chiles and garlic, I thought it would be spicer. Also, it makes a huge amount of marinade, enough for at least two meals, might try it on chicken breasts.
I used Jumbo Shrimp with this sauce and grilled it, then topped it with the sauce. Everyone loved it. and oh yea, I added a quarter cup off coconut to the sauce recipe.
