Preserves make a nice base to homemade barbecue sauce. Here apricot preserves, lime, ginger, cumin, jalapeño, and mango nectar combine for a unique sweet-tart combo. Make the sauce ahead and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
One online review shares her real-world advice: “This was incredible! The flavors were so intense together. We substituted 2 teaspoons Sriracha for the jalapeño pepper. We also substituted tilapia for pompano and basted both sides of the fish with sauce before broiling. Then we basted the fish again when we turned while broiling. We will definitely make this again.”
Prepare grill or broiler.
Combine first 9 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 18 minutes or until thick, stirring often.
Sprinkle fish with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; place on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, skin side up. Cook 5 minutes. Turn fish; brush with sauce. Cook 4 minutes or until fish flakes.
