Add A Little Polynesian Spice To Your Memorial Day Barbecue

Bring the flavor of French Polynesia into your own backyard with our delicious Mango BBQ Sauce recipe from Paul Ellis, Paul Gauguin Cruises' Corporate Exeuctive Chef.

This barbecue sauce is great with all varieties of grilled meats, fish and vegetables.
