Jamaican Hot Sauce

My favorite thing to order at a restaurant is their buffalo chicken salad. I love the heat that the sauce brings, with the coolness from the crispy lettuce and creamy bleu cheese dressing right after. I tried replicating a Jamaican hot sauce that is served at a local restaurant (Blue Moose) here in Minnesota. This is one of my favorite restaurants. Be ready, because this sauce brings the heat!

This recipe is based off of All Recipes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 18 fresh Scotch Bonnet peppers, sliced and seeded (or replace with habaneros or jalapeños for a milder sauce) –> if you don’t have peppers, just use 1 cup of Frank’s red hot sauce or another paleo approved hot sauce
  • 3 fresh jalapeño peppers, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup white wine or champagne vinegar
  • 1 tsp molasses (or brown sugar)
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Take a large saucepan over medium to medium-high heat and add the olive oil, peppers, garlic, onion and salt. Cook for 5-10 minutes. Be sure to stir frequently.
  2. Pour in the water and cook for 20 minutes. Continue to stir frequently.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture into a Nutribullet, Magic Bullet, high powered blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour in vinegar, molasses (or brown sugar) and salt and pepper; blend until mixed.
  5. Keep refrigerated in a mason jar or airtight container.IMG_2080
