Why you’ll love this recipe

Hot sauce is a versatile condiment that can effortlessly elevate the flavors of a wide range of dishes. Whether you’re a fan of heat and spice or just looking to add a kick to your meals, the inclusion of scotch bonnet peppers provides a bold and fiery flavour profile.

Ingredients needed

1 mango: adds a natural sweetness and thickness to the hot sauce.

1 white onion: contributes a savoury and aromatic base to the sauce.

3 scotch bonnet chillies: for those who enjoy a spicy kick in their condiments.

5 garlic cloves: add a robust and pungent flavour to the hot sauce.

Juice of 1 lime: provides acidity and hint freshness.

1 tsp salt: enhances the overall taste of the sauce.

75g sugar: balances the heat with a touch of sweetness.

160ml rice vinegar: lends a tangy and slightly sweet flavour.

80ml water: helps achieve the desired consistency 

Recipe Substitutions 

  1. Brown Sugar for White Granulated Sugar: If you prefer a deeper, more caramelised flavour, substitute brown sugar for white granulated sugar.
  2. White Wine Vinegar for Rice Vinegar: While rice vinegar contributes a mild, slightly sweet taste, white wine vinegar can be a suitable alternative, offering a different flavour profile.
  3. Garlic Powder for Garlic Cloves: If you’re looking for a quicker option, or if you don’t have any fresh garlic available, you can use garlic powder as a substitute. Adjust the quantity based on your taste preferences.

Hot sauce recipe variations

  1. Add Fresh Ginger: Elevate the flavour profile by incorporating ginger into the blend. Grate a small amount and add it to the ingredients before blending for a hint of warmth.
  2. Fruit Variations: Experiment with different fruits like pineapple or peach to add unique sweetness and flavour to the hot sauce.
  3. Smoked Paprika: Introduce a smoky element by incorporating a small amount of smoked paprika into the mix. This variation works for anyone who enjoy a smoky flavour in their hot sauce.
  4. Citrus Zest: Adding the zest of lime or lemon to the blend. This can intensify the freshness.
