Barbecue Time... you need a Sauce Chien

Why would this delectable addition to your grilled fish, lobster, chicken or lamb be given such a disgraceful name: dog sauce?

Sauce chien is a little hot sauce that only takes minutes to prepare, yet it adds a real kick to anything grilled!

It could all be called dinosaur sauce, we wouldn't mind as this finger licking dressing made from onions, chillis and lime is all you need to give your barbecue a an edge.

All you need is:

  • 1 scotch bonnet chilli
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • 3 spring onions
  • 15cl of oil
  • 1 tablespoon of chives sugarcane vinegar
  • 2 table spoons of hot water
  • 1 parsley stick
  • salt 
  • pepper
It's simple: chop the shallots, spring onions, onion, parsley, garlic and chilli as fine as possible. Add the lime juice, the sugarcane vinegar and hot water. Stir to emulsify and your sauce chien is ready!

How easy it that? You can use it as a dip sauce for your saltfish fritters, as a base for any quick dish requiring all the included ingredients. If you want to stay away from the burn switch from scotch bonnet chillet to sweet chilli, same flavour without the burn!

If you are on the lazy side, Carib gourmet has the best Sauce Chien available on the market.
