Perfect for a hot summer day, this refreshingly chilled melon appetizer is finished with tangy lime, salty fish sauce and fragrant basil.



Peel and seed cantaloupe and cut into bite-sized pieces.

In a bowl, combine lime juice, sugar, poblano, basil and fish sauce. Adjust the seasoning to your taste with additional fish sauce, sugar and/or hot sauce. Add cantaloupe and toss to marinate. Chill for about 1 hour.

Using small skewers, spear each melon ball with a raspberry and basil leaf.
