Lime & Tomato Chutney

030 Pic - Lime Marinade and Tomato Chutney Sauce.jpg

Finally, we are able to grill without wearing parkas to keep dry! The other day the sun popped out and demanded that we grill whatever we had. There was no time to run to the store for reinforcements - it might have been raining by the time I got back! So we dug out what was in the fridge -  two chicken breasts, one steak, and this little chutney. What came out of it was a delicious little sauce to accompany whatever protein you might be grilling. The tomatoes and sultanas give this just enough sweetness, which is balanced by the piquant chillies and ginger. The addition of soy gives it a rich earthiness and the lime brightens everything.  This marinade and sauce work great on shrimp, chicken beef or pork. Recipe based on two servings. Enjoy!
