Cilantro Hot Sauce 4-07-15

I have been slipping on my recipe posts and I bring you apologies in the form of this awesome homemade hot sauce with cilantro being the vehicle driving this flavor train!

MyTrinidadian people may be familair with this sauce being made with Shado Beni. Shado Beni is the close cousin to Cilantro. To me, Cilantro has a sharper flavor profile and combined with the lime and green onion in this recipe has a pickle feel. I love the idea of creating this sauce and using it on Cou Cou, provisions, or a beautiful steamed Mahi Mahi (Dolphin)

On to the recipe!!!

Cilantro Hot Sauce

A bunch of cilantro

Lime juice

Hot pepper



Green onion


You can chop everything by hand or throw it into a blender. I like to chop in order to preserve the integrity of the ingredients. A blender is going to pulverized everything into a thin sauce.

If you chop, like I do. Just add the lime and water at the end to control the liquid content. Be sure to salt to taste.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
