Fabulous! I made this recipe for a 4th of July BBQ and it was a huge hit! Everyone wants the recipe for it. I love the combination of sweet and spicy.

Outstanding!! I guess the White House Chef would create nothing less!!! The balance of flavors here was perfect!! Your mouth was constantly picking up wonderful tastes!! I loved the heat with the sweet of the fruit and marinade. This enhanced the fruit incredibly!! I put a little creme fraiche with it too just to taste. Will definitely make again, thanks so much for posting!!!!!!!
