Grilled Mango with Balsamic Glaze

Balsamic MangoThanks to my friend Rob, who tended bar at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, you’ll be able to taste this unusual lip smacking combo.

I added a pinch of chili for warmth and heat which breaks up the sweet punch of balsamic and mango. You rock Rob!!

  1. This sounds delicious. I can imagine that a few slices of sweet mango will go down well in between mouthfuls of ribs and wings.

  2. Amazing Recipe,
    It looks so delicious and it seems so easy to make.
    I am going to cook it tomorrow.
    Thank You!
