“It's summer time, hot and humid. Barbecue weather is here and we are set to have great out door meals. In this dish I like to use an orange and habanero bbq sauce but any kind of bbq sauce will work, use your favorite. This dish is quick and easy to make and always gets great reviews from family and friends. Served with steamed rice and a fresh berry salad or watermelon slices for a nice light meal.”
