We love everything about New Zealand – the people, the unbelievable natural scenery, the Lord of the Rings, and especially the food. Use this recipe for anything you put on a grill – meat, poultry, fish, or veggies. The whole idea is to use this full of flavor funky fun sauce twice – once to marinate, then again on the grill to glaze.
If you don’t know tamarillo yet, you should. Tamarillo has been around for a long time, generally believed to be native to the Andes of Peru. It was adopted by New Zealand as a commercial crop, and has developed a distinctive profile, unique to that country. The flesh of the New Zealand tamarillo is tangy and variably sweet with a bold and complex flavor, and may be compared to kiwifruit, sun-dried tomato, guava, or passion fruit, with hints of cherry. The tamarillo is rich in vitamins, A, B6, C, E, fiber and antioxidants– it is a true superfruit. The Serious Foodie Tamarillo Grill Sauce & Marinade captures the essence of New Zealand cuisine: tangy, sweet, savory, spicy, and completely unique.
