editor's note

This mellow hot sauce is perfect with hake, cod fish or shortly boiled crayfish. And will give this subtle white meat a full flavour. That is strong and hot. But not overwhelming. You would need a perfect balance of sweet & sour. And a mellow version of a hot sauce will provide you this ultimate marriage. You eat mellow hot sauce straight from the fridge. And you can store a closed jar or container for 2 week. Probably needless to say; this sauce is best on day 2
