Mahi Fine Foods

While Mahi are a brand featured in supermarkets and I typically try to showcase the more unusual and obscure, their green savina sauce caught my attention, early on, and soon they were a regular feature.

All that I asked for was a confirmation on that sauce’s chilli content and they sent two whole boxes of sauces and marinades my way. The first of which can be seen in my introduction to the company.

These guys are generous and, while they might not use the most high quality of ingredients, not a single sauce that they sent me dissappointed. Not that tangy green habanero one. Not the all-round ketchup alternative that was their Red Jala. And certainly not their pickled garlic sauce, which I loved over fish with a bit of parsley. Though my absolute favourite of the bunch was their peri peri garlic and herb.

Marinade-wise, their tikka was excellent for both chicken and paneer and really changed up my leftover stew, while their Peri Peri one was a touch less special but made for a delicious lunchtime wrap and their Wings Marinade did exactly what it said on the jar.

Nothing that they gave me was utterly mind blowing but they’ve been a consistently good budget option, with everything but their Cayenne & Cranberry proving a solid staple. So, if you’re looking for a nice and easy marinade, with instructions on the jar, or a simple, all round, everyday hot sauce, they’re certainly worth giving a look over at

And, if you do fancy checking them out, I’d also strongly suggest giving their mailing list a go. From what I can tell, Mahi have been sending out chilli seeds to everyone on there, not just being good to me.
