Sarina’s Tropical Mango Hot Sauce (recipe)

Tropical Mango Hot Sauce

This post was originally written for a 2007 installment of “Waiter There’s Something in my…”! The theme was sauces. Originally I had thought of coming up with a pasta sauce as I haven’t made pasta in a while, however over the past week we have been flooded with mangoes (from friends and neighbours). The influx of this fragrant ingredient made me ponder the possibilities. What about a sweet (but fiery) mango sauce?

This recipe couldn’t be simpler to assemble and prepare and readers have told me that they love it, which always puts a huge smile on my face. Tropical mangoes and pineapple bits mingled with sweet carrots, tomatoes. A scotch bonnet pepper provides the prerequisite heat and Angostura bitters adds a hint of ‘brightness’ to the mix :)

This sauce is ideal for serving on top of grilled vegetables, meats or fish. I can also see it being great on top of quesadillas or being an unexpected alternative to ketchup on burgers and hot dogs. It’s also wonderful served on the side of other dishes as a traditional ‘hot sauce’. It’s the perfect way to add a fruity, tropical touch to everyday dining :)

    Ooooh, a scotch bonnet! This is a fiery sauce, indeed. I say the hotter the better! I make a mango and pineapple salsa similar to this, so I know I’d love your sauce.

    Susan, Chris, Joey – So glad to see that many share my mango love :D hehehe. I’m sure that salsa is the best Susan. I actually got the inspiration to throw in some pineapple from salsa :) – cross pollination, the more the merrier! :D

    Hey Sarina,

    Are they alphonso mangoes that you’ve used here? I only ask because from the photo I can see that they’re quite different in appearance to the standard mangoes we get in Britain. I’ve seen mangoes that look similar to yours, but I didn’t investigate their name

    Trig – Dad calls the doudouce :D I don’t know if they are called Alphonso in other places? That isn’t a mango name that rings a bell, but it may be the same thing :D I have a post on the mango varieties we have here with more pics coming in a few days :D

    Hello! I found your recipe and made the mango hot sauce tonight! I used fresh pineapple instead of canned and couldn’t find the scotch bonnet peppers so I substituted habeneros. Not being a big hot sauce fan I was suprised to find myself spooning it onto my quesadilla. How long will this store? What is the best way to store it since I do not know how to can properly?
