Hot Sauce #191 – Blair’s Wasabi Green Tea Hot Sauce Review

Blair's Heat Wasabi Green Tea Exotic Hot SauceBlair’s Wasabi Green Tea Hot Sauce is delicious.  Seriously delicious.

My only problem is that I have no idea what to eat it on.

Blair’s Wasabi Green Tea Hot Sauce

Most hot sauces you see on the grocery shelves and in restaurants are what are commonly known as “Table Sauces.”

They are usually a bit salty – with a nondescript pepper taste.  Some are hotter than others, but they all are designed to taste good on just about any food.

Thus the name “Table Sauces.”  If you are going to put one bottle of hot sauce on your table, make it one that goes with everything.

It is obvious then why nearly all the most popular hot sauces are table sauces – Tabasco, Frank’s, Cholula are all table sauces.  There are many delicious small batch table sauces, too, that could be considered table sauces.  Race City Sauce Works Carolina Cayenne Pepper Sauce, Hot Line Pepper Products Hatchanero Hot Sauce are a couple good examples.

However, most small batch sauces are not table sauces.  Their creators distinguish themselves – and hopefully sell more bottles –  by making sauces that are totally different from what you can get in your typical corner supermarket.

Some of them do this by making a sauce that highlights a single ingredient or a couple of ingredients.  These range from the common – onions, pineapples, bourbon – to the truly bizarre – Absinthe, cactus.

Unlike table sauces, these specialty sauces do not go well with every food.  Part of their appeal – and part the fun for me, and I am sure most chili-heads – is figuring out which sauces go with which foods.

Occasionally though, I come across a sauce that I can’t pair up for the life of me.  Usually, the sauce isn’t that good to begin with and I just discard it.  But Blair’s Wasabi Green Tea Hot Sauce is absolutely delicious.  And it is killing me that I can not find anything – other than crackers or a spoon – that I like it on.

Blair's Heat Wasabi Green Tea Exotic Hot Sauce on Sushi

I tried it first on my “go to” foods like nachos, tacos and burritos.  But it is a “no go” for me on the ones I tried.

I haven’t tried fish tacos yet, but will soon.

After giving it a little thought, I decided that maybe it would be good on sushi. It is wasabi, right?  But it’s a little too sweet for me to enjoy it on sushi.

I’m going to keep trying, because I do love the taste.
