Review: Marie Sharp’s Exotic Sauce

Posted by Rick M on Dec 6th 2011

Producer: Marie Sharp's Fine Foods

Price: 5oz: $3.95, 10oz: $4.99

Ingredients: Green Mangoes, Tamarind, Raisins, Ginger, Sugar, Vinegar, Onions, Garlic, Habanero Peppers and Spices

Appearance: Thick, deep brown sauce with smooth consistency

Aroma: The mix of tamarind and sweetness of fruit give a very complex aroma

Taste: A sweet mix of mangoes, tamarind, and spice, with a hint of vinegar, this sauce shows no noticeable heat and is very similar to many steak sauces. I would not consider this a 'hot sauce'. This sauce would go very well on grilled chicken, as a glaze for beef roast, or as a dipping sauce for steak.

Heat: Mild (1).

Conclusion/General Comments: Marie Sharp's Exotic Sauce has a complex flavor and very pleasant aroma, but would be improved by moving the habanero peppers up in the ingredient list to give the sauce some heat.

Heat: 1   Flavor: 6
