Fat Cat Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce

March 19, 2019

   Fat Cat Gourmet Foods is an award-winning gourmet sauce manufacturing company from Orlando, Florida. Their products complement a wide range of foods, each having a very unique flavour profile. If you’re interested in learning more about Fat Cat and their products we offer here at Chilly Chiles, check out my review from awhile back of Fat Cat Chairman Meow’s Revenge. It’s another delicious product from their huge lineup of sauces!

   Their Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce is all-natural and gluten free, made with the perfect combination of ingredients to provide a nice sweet heat. The strawberry preserves made with sun-ripened strawberries, corn syrup, fruit pectin, and citric acid as well as the fresh strawberries all make for a fresh, fruity, sweet, and sour taste. The vinegar is only mildly noticeable while the serrano peppers add a light, fruity heat. The pineapple juice adds a nice subtle tropical sweetness to complement the strawberries. Onions add some texture to the sauce while the lime juice makes for a nice tangy and citrusy quality, once again adding a nice layer to the overall flavour profile. Cane sugar of course ensures that the sauce is as sweet as it needs to be while the garlic ever-so-subtly manages to bring its mild zingy notes. Very little garlic was added in order for the overall fruity quality of the sauce to shine through most.

   In terms of heat, this one gets a 1 out of 10 from me. Serrano is already a pretty mild pepper, similar to the jalapeno, so it comes as no surprise that once you add fruit into the mix the sauce becomes even milder. Upon tasting, I immediately got the sweet taste of strawberries and then a very subtle tingle from the peppers. It’s a heat level that anyone can handle. As long as you like sweet, fruity hot sauces, and specifically like strawberries, there’s no way you won’t like this one!

   Strawberry Serrano actually has more culinary uses than you may think. Sure, it may not exactly work in pasta or a taco, but it can be used in so many other ways that almost all other hot sauces on the market cannot! It’s delicious on ice cream, pancakes, frozen yoghurt, waffles, French toast, crepes, in peanut butter sandwiches, on buttered toast, plain yoghurt, cheesecake, in a lemonade, milkshake, smoothie, fruity cocktail, and so much more! It can even serve as a sweet sauce to top your grilled meats and poultry and also works as a flavourful addition to cheese courses. There really are many possibilities with this one!

   Come by one of our store locations and give Fat Cat Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce a try!

As always, Keep it spicy!

Delicious with the perfect kick

Probably the best tasting hot sauce I've ever had. It is really delicious, with a slow building kick that is perfect for me. My only gripe is that it is pretty thin and goes quick. I finished the bottle inside of a week, mind you I really enjoyed it and may have been a little too generous each time I took it out. I wish I could buy it in a much, much larger bottle.

Blazing hottt!!!

The heat just keeps building

Smoked onion sauce with a bit of kick

I would definitely characterize this sauce as an onion sauce first with some after thoughts of smoke and spice. Picture a soft fried onion, definitely not caramelized, just a bit soft with plenty of remaining onion flavor mixed with some smoked jalapeno peppers. It is almost like a jar of oniony jalepno poppers without the cheese of course.

It is an assertive sauce that I feel goes best with a savory dish without a lot of competing strong flavours, goes well on a steak sandwich, not so well on a samosa.

Excellent
