Top 5 Chinese Dishes with Hot Sauce

Chinese meals are long known for their daring Scoville heat levels. Possibly one of the spiciest of cuisines in the world, Chinese dishes are creative enough to balance the heat with mixed flavors of various meats and vegetables to create one unforgettable meal. Whether it is for party snacks, a grand buffet, or just a good family dinner, here is out Top 5 Chinese Dishes that work great with hot sauce


Spicy Fried Shrimp

Fried shrimp is good for any occasion! With the crunchiness of the outside and the softness of the inside, this classic treat is enhanced by the spiciness of the peppers. The recipe includes large eggs, cornmeal, cayenne pepper, peanuts, canola, and hot sauce (we recommend using either our Sauce No. 23 or our Sauce No. 10).


Shrimp Siu Mai Dumplings

Another seafood dish, these dumplings are simply to die for! They are perfect social snacks that offer a unique taste that combines salty, sweet, and spicy flavors all in one punch. It utilizes 1 egg white, carrot, honey, red ball pepper, chopped chives, kosher salt, sodium soy sauce, Hot Sauce No. 10, sesame oil, and petite peas for a lovely taste that your party guests won’t soon forget.


Hot Chicken Laksa

Technically Laksa is a Peranakan dish, combining Malaysian and Chinese influences. However, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to introduce you to this beauty. This dish fills your mouth with varying flavor, combining chicken, vegetables, spices, and sugar for so many opposing tastes that end up tasting great together. The recipe includes a pound of chicken, coconut oil, curry paste, shallots, chicken broth, peanut butter, brown sugar, bean sprouts, kale, soy sauce, and our Hot Sauce No. 10.


Chicken Fried Brown Rice

A garden of flavor, the Chicken Fried Brown Rice doesn’t disappoint with its mixed, yet perfectly complimenting flavor. The ingredients involve boneless chicken breasts, onions, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, peas, eggs, Hot Sauce No. 10, vegetable oil, and shredded carrots.


Ginger-Shrimp Pot Stickers

Now that we’ve gone through so much excitement, it’s time for something a bit more relaxed. However, relaxed doesn’t mean a drop in quality. On par with everything else presented, the Ginger-Shrimp Pot Stickers are a wonderful lunch filled with wontons, peanut butter, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, chile paste, Hot Sauce No. 10, ginger, cilantro, and so much more. Do not underestimate these unassuming little squares; they have a little bit of everything packed inside.
