Review: Fat Kid Sauces Mango Amore Habanero Hot Sauce
Appearance: A nice orange color with lots of kiwi seeds and bits of pepper flesh clinging to the inside.
Now I always take it as a good sign when I can see bits of pepper suspended and clinging to the sides.
Consistency: It has a syrup like consistency, flows nicely. The consistency kind of reminds me of apricot nectar, as it leaves a bit of a trail of it’s fruity contents.
Taste: Wow, I have tried a lot of sweet sauces, this one is definitely unique! The flavors of the kiwi mango and peach all seem to greet the palate as a team of fruity tanginess. I think I can just slightly detect the lime juice. The heat comes almost immediately. The habanero flavor is almost like an aftertaste. A delicious lingering aftertaste. This sauce is fun to taste. Try it straight off the spoon, roll it around in your mouth and try to separate the flavors.
Heat: I would give this one about a 4-4.5 which for me as a dessert sauce was perfect.
2 ripe bananas
3 Tbl butter
3Tbl brown sugar
6Tbl Fat Kid Sauces Mango Amore Habanero Hot Sauce
4Tbl Cruzan Blackstrap rum
3 bowls vanilla ice cream
1 pint heavy cream
1 whipped cream charger
Peel and cut the bananas into 1/2 ” rounds. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add brown sugar, bananas, and 4 Tbl of the Mango Amore. Simmer for about 4 minutes turning the bananas to coat. Add the rum, allow to simmer for about 30 seconds then flambe (light it). Allow alcohol to burn off. Remove from heat. Pour heavy cream and remaining Mango Amore into the whipped cream charger. Load charger with gas cylinder (our takes NOS cartridges). Pour warm banana mixture over ice cream. Top liberally with Mango Amore whipped cream.
Now I made this stuff at half the batch above the first night, and it was in high demand for dessert again last night. I’m gonna need a bigger bottle! I wish it was summertime right now because that whipped cream would be fantastic over a bowl of mixed berries straight from the farmer’s market!
I used some of the whipped cream on my espresso this morning. There is something so satisfying about seeing little bits of Red Savina in whipped cream!
At this point I realize that I am not going to have enough of this sauce left to make the meal I planned (chorizo dogs with mango avocado salsa), so I improvised.
Mango Amore Shrimp Wrap
1/2 avocado diced
1/4 C sweet onion diced
1/4C tomato diced
1Tbl sour cream
1Tbl FatKid Sauces Mango Amore Habanero Hot Sauce
6 shrimp peeled deveined tails removed
1 flour tortilla
Hickory smoked sea salt, Black pepper, and garlic powder
In a small mixing bowl combine the avocado, tomato, onion, sour cream and Mango Amore, mix well and set aside. Melt butter in skillet. Liberally season shrimp with salt, pepper and garlic. Saute shrimp in butter (do not overcook). Spread avocado mixture across tortilla. Arrange shrimp on top. Roll it up and enjoy! I also added some lettuce to mine.
This wrap is fantastic it brings layers of flavor together. The garlic and salt on the shrimp provide a delightful contrast to the fruity onion avocado mixture.
With so many great sauces out there I didn’t think this one would become one of my top ten favorites. I had heard from others that it was good, and that it went well with bananas. When I made whipped cream with it I knew Iwas going to have more. The shrimp wrap however sent it over the top. Mango Amore, not just for dessert!
