Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce

January 03, 2018

  a close up of foodSecret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce is by-far my favourite tomato-based sauce that I’ve ever had. There’s no wonder it’s currently featured on the show Hot Ones, led by the great personality Sean Evans on First We Feast’s YouTube channel. You can find all the products that have been, or are currently, featured on the Hot Ones show by clicking on our “Hot Ones” tab at the top of our website.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      This sauce blends the flavours of the Caribbean and Tex-Mex for an all-around sweet and savoury sauce with a kick! What makes this sauce unique as a tomato-based sauce is that it’s made with fresh as well as fire-roasted tomatoes. This makes the natural sweetness of the sauce all the bolder and more savoury, with a subtle smoky depth. Habanero peppers are the only hot peppers used in this sauce, and they deliver the heat in a way that is not too pronounced. The citrus-like taste of these peppers complements the natural sweetness and acidity of the tomatoes. The peppers bring this sauce to a 3 out of 10 for heat. The reason for this is not only that habaneros are not at the top of the ingredients list, but that the sweetness of this sauce balances out with the heat perfectly. The carrots in this sauce also adds to the sweet taste of the tomatoes, with the white wine vinegar adding a nice pungency. A subtle hint of mustard is also present in this sauce with a slight taste of garlic, adding to the overall boldness and tang.

   I use Secret Aardvark mostly as a table sauce and incorporate it into dishes that could use a spicy-sweet edge. I have mixed it with mayo, put it on burgers, pizza, wings, eggs, Mexican dishes, sausages, and in sandwiches. You can also use this sauce as a marinade with seafood, chicken, beef, and more! I highly recommend Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce to anyone who loves a bold, sweet, and savoury kick!

Have a happy new year! Make it a spicy one!
