Flavors from Spiceburst
The Rocket Sauce is a thick and herby sauce made with onions, scotch bonnet peppers, parsley, lime juice, vinegar, and lots of fresh herbs. The inspiration for this flavor combination came from a hot pepper sauce the Sierers discovered on a vacation in Barbados. Their version is spicy but not overly hot. They recommend it on baked chicken, on grilled chicken wings and shrimp, splashed on roasted new potatoes, drizzled on scrambled eggs or bratwurst, or even as a pasta topping. I found that its tangy flavor is wonderful in burgers (I seasoned the ground beef with it and then squeezed more sauce onto the toasted bun), and it elevated my beloved Tater Tots to gourmet status. It would be fabulous on hot dogs or on grilled steaks (like chimichurri), and I'm sure I'll come up with many other uses for its unique flavor. Because it comes in a plastic squeeze bottle, it is easy to dispense and safe to carry in a picnic basket.
