Fire Foods - Thai Fire Sauce

Fire Foods - Thai Fire Sauce

A cursory glance at the ingredients in this little number reveals Extract not far down on the list. If you saw Darth’s review of another new Fire Foods sauce recently, you’ll know I had good reason to worry as I lifted the red cap from the sleek black bottle. I need not have worried, this is mild sauce with the emphasis on flavour.

With the exception of one or two, so many of the sauces that passed through my fridge over the summer months fell into the same category – ‘that would go alright on a burger style sauce’, so it’s refreshing to have something a bit different. The name gives it away a little, ‘Thai Fire Sauce’, and its not trying to re-invent the Asian-sauce wheel but it is a well blended mix of chilli, soy and garlic (I’m sure I can taste sesame in there too but apparently there’s none).

Ingredients: Sugar, Water, Chilli, Garlic, Vinegar, Chilli Extract, Soy sauce, Salt, Stabilizer, Preservative

This is probably put to best use as a dipping sauce but I’m sure it would work equally well poured over a stir-fry, that is if you can bring yourself to part with half the bottle in one go. Now I know at the beginning of this review I called this a mild sauce, it is compared to some of the others that Fire Foods produce, but in relation to other Thai dipping sauces this is on the hot end of the spectrum, so don’t let what I said at the start put you off if you like your heat, this ain’t no shrinking violet.

Head over to www.firefoods.co.uk to pick up a bottle.
