    Great meal! Kids and adults alike enjoyed the meal. Used the dry jerk seasoning recipe from Rita's Jamaican Jerk Seasoning on Seasoning could use a touch more heat for hubby, but kids liked it as is just fine. Mangoes were quite delicious, especially with a drizzle of the sauce over top. Only had salted butter on hand for the rum sauce, so used it and omitted extra salt. Not sure if that's why sauce never thickened up, but was still quite tasty. Served with steamed baby carrots and basmati rice. Used boneless pork loin chops instead of tenderloin and turned out just fine. Plan to try it again this weekend, using boneless chicken breasts.

    This was so tasty! I actually had some island spice that my sister bought while she was vacationing in Jamaica. You certainly need some type of island spice for this meal. The only difficulty I had with this recipe was cutting the mango. Although, I think this was due to the mango not being a good one.

    This was pretty good and the family liked it. I forgot we had run out of rum, so I subbed bourbon - probably part of my lack of enthusiasm. I served it with some jasmine rice - maybe coconut rice would be a better choice. Pretty easy to make overall though.

    This was an instant hit. It's super quick to make. My daughter says the grilled mango with sauce is better than doughnuts! I prepared plain couscous as a side but added some leftover lime juice to the cooking water and drizzled it with the rum sauce when serving. It was a nice compliment to the fruit and helped temper the heat from the pork. If you aren't a big spice fan you may want to reduce the jerk seasoning to 2 teaspoons. My family doesn't mind heat but it does tend to sneak up on you as you eat the pork.
