This fruit-based barbecue sauce combines that perfect blend of sweet and heat to make a sauce perfect for virtually any use. By pairing the sugar of a good strawberry jam with habanero hot sauce, you get a deep flavor that adds to foods taste. This barbecue sauce is perfect for chicken and pork.


  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • 2 limes (zest and juice)
  • 1/4 cup thin soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ginger (finely minced)
  • 1/4 cup mint (fresh, minced)
  • 2 tablespoons habanero hot sauce

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well.

  2. Since it has sugars in it, do not brush onto grilled foods until they are almost ready to leave the grill. 

This sweet and spicy sauce works great as both a marinade and a barbecue sauce.
