2-in-1 Alert! Shrimp Grilled with Pineapple-Peach BBQ Sauce



People, people, people! Summer is here and our grills are out. Again with last week's theme of southern summer meals, Atlanta style, here is a sauce that's going to make you rethink the power of the peach. Understand me when I tell you. It's sweet, smokey, tangy, bold, and light somehow. Its fun as a marinade or grilling sauce (as I used here on the shrimp). You can also use it as a dipping sauce. It works beautifully on shrimp, salmon, chicken, pork, and veggies. Enjoy!
