5 Stars and more for the Sauce & 5 stars with our grilled stripped bass. You were "right on" about the timing for our grilled Stripped Bass filets. I didn't have a habanero pepper, but, I used 1 and a 1/2 of my home grown jalapeno peppers for the sauce. (their hot) The sauce had the right amount of "kick" and DH and I loved our fish with the sauce. I know the sauce would work for chicken and pork. This recipe is a keeper and favorite. Thank you CPA Chef.

This is a great recipe, I doubled it and used it on sautéed snow peas and red peppers served alongside the fish. I got rave reviews. The leftovers a few days later tasted great too!

This was an absolutely delicious sauce and I could imagine putting it on just about anything. My husband and I loved it! I used chili paste because I didn't have a habanero pepper. It was just spicy enough. My next step is to try it on shrimp.
