Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce Review
Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce - Who is this Melinda chick? She knows her sauces. I tried Melinda’s Coffee BBQ Sauce and found it to be an exceptional blend of flavors; I tried Melinda’s Naga Jolokia and absolutely fell in love with it. I’m not sure where the sauce artists that concoct these beauties comes from, but Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet his the third home run in a row.
The scotch bonnet is a very hot pepper in the same family as habaneros. It’s found primarily in the Caribbean. Although it’s hot, it has a subtle sweet undertone that makes it ideal for a number of foods and cooking applications.
Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce starts with a vibrant bright orange color infused with bright red pieces of scotch bonnet and plenty of seeds, delivering that textural component that gives a sauce that three-dimensional experience and food-clinging factor.
Fresh scotch bonnet peppers, carrots, passion fruit juice, lime juice, salt, and garlic lend themselves to an incredible balance of fruity flavor, floral scent, and a medium heat level that will please any hot sauce lovers palate.
An obvious choice for Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce is any of the traditional West Indies (Caribbean ) dishes, but any seafood item is perfect for this one. I tried it on roasted snapper, tilapia with lemon butter, and with lime-soaked shrimp in basil butter. The scotch bonnet is a friend of seafood. It’s a friend of mine too. It’s actually one of my favorite peppers, and when a sauce brings together a list of ingredients that highlights this beautiful pepper, so much the better. That’s why Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet is so exceptional. The layers of ingredients don’t overpower the scotch bonnet but lend themselves to a foundation that enhances the flavor of the pepper.
Besides the foods I mentioned above, Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce well with chicken and it makes a great addition to chip dips. I also use it in vegetables – corn especially.
If you’re a fan of the Scotty Bons, as these peppers are sometimes called, Melinda’s Scotch Bonnet is a finely tuned sauce that showcases the wonders of scotch bonnet to full potential.
