Handsome made this as a gift for his brother’s birthday and it is absolutely delicious. We gifted it in a storage jar, along with the recipe on a little card. You can make and keep this for one month in the refridgerator and it would be great with any meat of fish. Marinade for at least two hours, then grill for dark delicious spicy perfection.
