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!

As always, Keep it spicy!

Secret Aardvark Drunken Jerk Marinade

May 13, 2019

The Drunken Jerk Marinade is savoury, intense, spiced, and salty. This intensity is mainly due to the fact that its main use is that of a marinade, and thus has a high concentration of flavour. Therefore, it’s not necessarily the kind of sauce you would douse on any dish.
