As Lee recounted in his tale of the show, the Cash crew was as excited to announce their latest collectible at the 2007 Fiery Foods Show as people were to give it a try. A Naga Jolokia & Wasabi sauce? Game on! But damn it all to hell, they signed and numbered them and then said that the regular version wouldn’t be ready for quite some time. Oh well, I bought 2, one to keep and one to try. If anyone’s keeping track, #62 is now deceased.

A little grainy

As you can see from the picture above, the sauce is a bit rough & if you try it straight you’ll notice a left over grit on your tongue. But if you try it on food, you won’t notice a thing.

Now that’s a spicy tuna roll

I didn’t make the sushi seen above, but I did make it super spicy. I took some of the Naga Sabi, added a bit of soy sauce to reduce the thickness and put it into a squeeze bottle to drizzle over the crunchy spicy tuna rolls from Momo Sushi, a sushi place right around the corner from us.

A mushroom cloud of painThe Naga Sabi Bomb smells & tastes sweet, but don’t let that fool you. Like the bomb that hit Nagasaki, Naga Sabi sauce will leave behind a mushroom cloud of pain and leave you wanting more. For me, I didn’t get the Wasabi “hit” at all, but I’ve been spoiled with real Wasabi
lately. Without the Wasabi jump start, the sauce starts out a bit slow for me and then builds to an earth shattering crescendo. The heat caught up with me so unexpectedly that I’m now convinced that the Naga Sabi Bomb was the unidentified sauce I tried at the Fiery Foods Show. You see, at the Fiery Foods Show, I was walking around with Aaron and trying some sauces (I think this was on day 2) when all of a sudden this intense wave of heat began kicking my ass – tears & hiccups, the whole 9 yards. But then, at the show, I couldn’t remember what in the hell I had tried. Literally, it was a few rows away before it hit me. A true slow builder.

So I knew what I was getting into when I doused the rolls with the sauce – I wanted to see how long the burn could go. And you know what? The heat lasted damn near an hour after I finished the last piece (no liquids). And honestly, after the 3rd piece, I couldn’t feel my tongue anymore. Fantastic!

Naga Sabi Bomb Hot Sauce
Last kernel standing

It’s sweet and has the longest “heat tail” of any non-extract sauce I’ve encountered as of late. I recommend trying it on sushi to tease out some of the Wasabi flavor. And if your not a sushi person, then give it a whirl on anything that can stand up well with a sauce that is both sweet and packs a killer heat level. And make sure to warn the family that the Naga Sabi Bomb is about to be dropped, cause it could get ugly!
