    don't normally cook outside if I can manage it, but this is well worth the effort. or, what little effort it took. think it could use some lime but otherwise very nice  -  08 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    like others i thought the ingredients list was too short to be rated so well, but won over by the inclusion of sugar. i was pleasantly surprised by the good balance of flavours  -  08 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added a little garlic the first time since I was using an electric grill and thought it could use something. On the charcoal grill, I followed the recipe to the letter.  -  22 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
