We had to adjust this recipe for use on the stovetop because the weather prevented us from grilling, but otherwise we followed the recipe as written. It was a quick dish to pull together and we loved/appreciated the short ingredients list. The only complaints we had were that the honey mixture seemed less flavorful than we'd expected, almost as if it needed just a little something extra - maybe my salt measurement was off? or maybe it needed a little more savory - to boost the flavor. I will definitely try this recipe again when we're able to get to the grill and see if perhaps the cooking method makes all the difference.
