The Best Hot Pepper Sauces

I’m a hot sauce fiend – I put hot sauce on practically everything. I’ve travelled quite extensively over the years and I’ve encountered a few hot sauces that I consider the best. I try hot sauce just about everywhere I travel. I don’t like the ones that are so hot they burn your mouth off and have no flavor; I like hot sauce that is hot, but also has a great flavor. In this article I describe my three favorite hot sauces.

Grace Pepper Sauce

I first discovered this hot sauce while on vacation at Sandals Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This hot sauce is very flavorful and very hot. I put this hot sauce on practically everything – in soups, on Caesar salad, on pizza, on Mexican Food, etc. This hot sauce is a great “staple” hot sauce that goes with everything. If you like Tabasco Sauce, you’ll like this hot sauce much better! Grace Pepper Sauce has a similar consistency to Tabasco sauce. This sauce is based on capsicum peppers. I think the other ingredient that adds to the flavor is the cane vinegar.

Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce

This is the hot sauce I use with all Asian food. I can practically eat this hot sauce with just steamed rice. It is pretty hot and very flavorful. This goes with any stir fry dish, Asian soups (like Pho), and even salads, like a Thai Beef Salad. This sauce is fairly thick with chunks of peppers and garlic. This sauce is based on ground chilis (not sure what kind – it doesn’t say) and garlic. The garlic adds a nice touch.

Matouk’s Flambeau Sauce

I first discovered this sauce on a Windjammer Barefoot cruise from Antigua to Tortola. This sauce is my favorite to add to soups or greens, like callaloo or spinach. This sauce is not as thick as the Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce, but it is a little thicker then Grace Pepper Sauce. This sauce is based on aged pickled scotch bonnet peppers.
