4 Unexpected Ways to Use Hot Sauce
If you’re a lover of all things hot and spicy like we are at Corine’s Cuisine, then you are probably always on the lookout for new and inventive ways of adding a bit of heat to your daily dishes. Sure, adding hot sauce to your morning eggs was once fun and new, but we hot sauce lovers must continue to innovate. Here are some ways to add a kick to your meals you may not have considered.
Add Hot Sauce to Mayo
Create your own all purpose spicy spread by adding your favorite hot sauce to a good-quality mayonnaise or egg-free mayo. This is a great way to spice up your favorite sandwiches, tuna salad, egg salad, and pretty much anything else you would want to put mayo on. Try your fries the Belgian way with spicy mayo (they call it “Samurai Sauce”). The best part? Creating different flavored spreads by using different flavored hot sauces. Make a super-hot Caribbean spread with Corine’s Cuisine Sauce No. 23, or a medium-spicy hot pepper spread with Sauce No. 10. Sauce No. 7 will create a tangy-ginger mayo great for tuna salad. And don’t forget you can experiment with ketchup as well. With Sauce No. 3 you’ll have what the Belgians call “Curry Ketchup,” another favorite on fries!
Toast is experiencing a creative evolution of late. With different versions of gourmet toasts popping up on the menus of the hottest restaurants (hello avocado toast), toast is the perfect food to experiment with. Try adding a couple drops of Corine’s Cuisine Sauce No. 7 (ginger & lime) over avocado on toast. Put a little Sauce No. 10 in your cream cheese to spice up your smoked salmon on toast, or drizzle a little over a poached egg on buttered whole wheat! A little spice in the morning is a great way to start the day!
In a Smoothie
Making your own juices and smoothies is a great way to get the proper amount of fruit and vegetables that you need in your diet. Spicy smoothies are quickly gaining popularity, and for good reason; they’re delicious! Mango, lime, spinach, coconut, and a dash of hot sauce? Sounds like your new favorite drink. Corine’s Cuisine Sauce No. 23 is ideal for this, since it uses fresh Scotch bonnet peppers and healthy apple-cider vinegar instead of the white vinegar typically found in other hot sauces.
Added to Melted Chocolate
Looking for a way to make a killer chocolate fondue? Add a little hot sauce to give this classic dessert an unexpected kick. As with the smoothies, Corine’s Cuisine Sauce No. 23 is the best way to go when combining heat and sweet!
