Hope you’re having a great tuesday, everyone, ’cause it’s about to get just a little weirder.
Why? Because today’s hot sauce is one of the craziest yet. One that, as a lover of all things unusual in food, I absolutely could not pass up.
I didn’t find a lot of sauces at Challock Chilli Fest but the few that I did buy were all something special. And I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to unveil this one, in particular.
So, what exactly is it that’s on display today? It’s Karimix’s Teriyaki Wasabi Sauce:
An asian-style spicy sauce unique in its complete and utter lack of chilli.

Hey there, everyone, last month we saw the last of Mahi Fine Foods’ sauce samples and it was quite possibly the best thing in either of my two gift boxes from them. But their last tablesauce wasn’t their last product so, to truly see if it’s the best that Mahi have to offer, I’m going to have to try their last marinade as well.
This is, as you can see, their wing one. And, like their Tikka, it’s labelled in black as part of their barbecue range.
Yet what little other colour we can see on the front is yellow, this time, to distinguish it from the Tikka’s deep orange. The only major change to set it apart from that previous marinade, so I won’t be saying much more about the labelling today.
What I will say, though, is that the british crown to the left of the company’s name makes much less sense here, given that wings are a predominantly american dish.
Now, onto the product inside.
Happy tuesday again, folks. Today, it’s time for another golden brown sauce.
Yet this isn’t another mustard one like earlier this month. No, today we’re looking at the last of Mahi’s table sauces and it’s a more traditional, peri peri sort.
Their Peri Peri Herb Sauce, with a claimed heat intensity of medium.
I’ve been putting it off because it didn’t look or sound like anything special but actually, upon tasting it, I think I might have unwittingly saved their best for last.
Guess what, everyone?
It’s another surprise recipe sunday and, this time, I’m working with one of Mahi’s samples for a simple, tasty, lunchtime wrap. Like the one I mentioned back in my review of their Peri Peri Marinade.
It’s a dish with a tiny bit of indian flare from its paneer cheese filling but also the crispness of fresh veg paired with a the smooth chilli taste that very product. Not that you couldn’t go a little bolder and more traditional with their tika if you really wanted.
Happy tuesday again people. Last month I took a look at Mahi Fine Foods’ Lime & Coriander Rub & Marinade, only to find it absolutely heatless.
It wasn’t bad but it did leave me scrambling for something else to feature. It was a mistake that I won’t be making twice.
As I sit down to write about their Tikka Marinade, I can assure you that I’ve already read through the ingredients at least five times:
Water, Tomato Paste, Onions, Red Chilli Paste, Garlic Paste, Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Ginger Paste, Citric Acid, Ground Paprika, Yoghurt, Mixed Spices, Beetroot and Stabilizer: Xanthan Gum.
This one has chilli in it and, if the taste is anything to go by, it’s got a fair bit at that.
Happy may day, everyone! Today I’d like to celebrate a special occasion but perhaps not that one.
Instead, I’d like to talk about a lesser-known german holiday, walpurgisnacht.
It’s the night of Saint Walpurga, the last night of april and, due to my upload times, the night I’m actually posting this on. But it’s also known for being the night when the witches come out. The night when people stay indoors to avoid being spirited away, never to return.
So, with that in mind, I’d like to show you the Chilli Pepper Company’s Witches’ Brew. A sauce which is supposedly their caribbean take on Tabasco.
Hey folks, bit of a last minute switcheroo this week.
I was going to be showing you another Mahi product – One of the many extra marinades that they sent me recently – but then I took another look at its ingredients list and realised something:
Their Lime & Coriander Rub & Marinade has no chilli in it!
And sure, I’ve featured a couple of non-chilli products before and done recipes that focused on non-chilli spices but that’s the thing; they all focused on their heat source.
The marinade in question does no such thing. Despite claiming a medium heat intensity, it has no burn to it, nor any obvious black pepper flavour. It’s just sweet yet tangy, in a way that makes it rather like ranch dressing.
I can imagine it would make a gorgeous caesar salad with a bit of anchovy blended into it or an equally wonderful new potato one without but, as a spice freak writing for other fiery food lovers, I just can’t make a main feature out of it.
So instead, here’s some cheese:
Alright, everyone, I’ve left a little too much time between these and will try to be a little quicker about uploading the next one but here we go with the third of my Mahi Fine Food reviews.
This time, though, it’s not your average sauce. It’s a dedicated rub and marinade.
The first such product to be featured on my site, in fact.
Hey folks, meet Mahi Fine Foods, the latest in a long line of companies sending me free stuff.
Happy tuesday again, everyone.
Last month we took a look at a good, hot scotch bonnet sauce given to me by ChimouliS so this time we’re going to see their milder side.
I have for you today, their medium heat Pear & Lemongrass sauce. Or, as their info sheet calls it, simply their Pear sauce.
