Definitely a 5star keeper! I'm looking forward to using it as a dip.

As BBQ sauce, it was fine. But it was NOTHING like honey garlic sauce. The tomatoes completely changed it.

Amazing, this is now in my permanent recipes, you will not be disappointed.

I love this recipe. It is perfect. I did not make any changes at all. Thank you for posting this. It is a keeper.

Cooked salmon in this sauce. It gave the salmon an Asian flare! Tasted outstanding!
