Tortuga Hot Caribbean Pepper Sauce

Tortuga Hot Caribbean Pepper Sauce is a classic West Indian hot sauce made from a traditional recipe featuring fiery scotch bonnet peppers in a tangy mustard base. If you want to experience a true Caribbean scotch bonnet hot sauce, you can't go wrong with this one from Grand Cayman Island. While the heat of the hot peppers definitely takes center stage, the mustard and authentic island seasonings provide richness of flavor that will complement any savory dish. The combination of mustard and fiery heat make this hot sauce an excellent choice for all sorts of grilled fare, from robust meats to succulent chicken. But because Tortuga Hot Caribbean Pepper Sauce is *not* a vinegar hot sauce, it will also nicely complement fish, seafood and other more delicate fare without overpowering the food. And as you can imagine, it's simply wonderful on any type of Caribbean dishes, from conch fritters to meat patties to red beans and rice. I turned a relatively boring veggie burger (yes, I do eat those from time to time!) into a spicy tropical burger by omitting my usual condiments and instead splashing on some of this zesty hot sauce and topping the burger with finely sliced green onions.

Tortuga Hot Caribbean Pepper Sauce has zero carbs and is low in sodium, with only 65 mg per teaspoon -- and you probably won't need an entire teaspoon to season an individual serving of food unless you're one of those folks who douses everything with hot sauce. And if you are, then you'll be VERY glad to know that a full-size 5 oz bottle of Tortuga Hot Caribbean Pepper Sauce is currently on sale for only $3.50 a bottle at the Carolina Sauce Company online store, so you can get several bottles without breaking your budget!

Zestfully yours,
