Summer is here, and that means firing up the grill and savouring all the mouthwatering flavours of your grilled favourites. And while our BBQ Line is essential for any grilling chilehead, we thought we’d give you a few options to take your grilling game to the next level with the perfect hot sauce pairings (with one grilling suggestion sneaking in)!
The Bold and the Beefy:
When it comes to grilled beef, a robust hot sauce can complement its rich flavours perfectly. Consider pairing a smoky chipotle hot sauce (Fiery Chipotle) with a juicy steak to add a delightful kick. For those seeking an extra punch, a feisty habanero hot sauce (Hophead Habanero, Habanero Moonshine) will do the trick.
Grilled chicken or turkey can benefit from a tangy hot sauce that balances the mildness of the meat. A tangy jalapeno hot sauce (Jalapeno Apple) can bring a refreshing twist, while a blend of sweet and spicy mango hot sauce (Tropical Habanero) will add a tropical flair to your poultry masterpiece. Prepare for a burst of flavours that will have you reaching for seconds.
Vegetables are not just for sides; they can take centre stage on the grill. Enhance the natural flavours of grilled veggies with our Black Bean Ginger hot sauce. If you're feeling adventurous, drizzle some sweet FireCandy Curry hot sauce over grilled corn on the cob for a mouthwatering experience. Who said veggies can't be exciting?
Grilled seafood deserves a hot sauce that compliments its delicate flavours while bringing the heat. Our classic cayenne hot sauce - Lime Cilantro - can provide the right amount of heat to grilled shrimp/fish or fresh oysters. If you're in the mood for a more mild, coastal twist, try our Heavenly Horseradish hot sauce to bring out the natural sweetness of grilled scallops or lobster tails.
As you fire up your grill this summer, don't forget to reach for that bottle of hot sauce and unlock a world of flavour possibilities. With the right hot sauce pairing, you can transform ordinary grilled favourites into extraordinary culinary delights.
So - dare to experiment, savour the heat, and let your taste buds be your guide!
