Captain Thom's Thai Monkey

Captain Thom's Thai Monkey

The story goes that “Captain Thom and the crew, after fishing along the Great Barrier Reef, made a stop in Thailand, to sample some of the hot and spicy Thai food. Overhearing a story from one of the local street vendors about a Mystic Book of Recipes. We made an excursion into the interior jungle, where we found the legendary Monkey King and the rare book. The Monkey King was so impressed by our love of spicy foods that he presented us with the mystical book. This hot sauce is a product of that book.”

The sauce come in the standard 148 ml/5 oz bottle it is dark brown in colour with a few seeds visible in suspension, on opening there is the unmistakable smell of sweet Teiyaki sauce, but it is not just that there is also big hints of Wasabi ( AKA Japanese green horseradish) that gives this an unmistakeable tingle in the nose and at back of the throat.

The source is thick and sticky, ideal for use on the BBQ but only at the end of cooking (Don’t burn this kind of sauce, it is not a marinade). The taste is sublime, sweet Teiyaki soon gives way to some hot chilli heat and then the Wasabi and finally the roasted peanuts, it is not an extreme heat sauce, but it is exceptionally good, it is hard to stop tasting it just for that initial bust of flavours.

It stuff  is just a great sauce, while it does not completely full fill my need for heat, but it sure gets close to being the most interesting Teriyaki style sauce I have tried, my lips are tingling with that combination if Wasabi and Chilli.. fire up the BBQ its time for some chicken.

Ingredients: Teriyaki Sauce (Soy Sauce, Sugar, Sherry Wine, Corn Syrup, Pineapple Juice, Distilled Vinegar, Corn Starch, Burgundy Wine, Pineapple Juice Powder, Salt, Garlic Powder, Caramel Colour, Potassium Sorbate, Water, Natural Flavours), Pineapple Juice, Water, Onion, Spices, Wasabi, Thai Peppers, Peanut Butter (Roasted Peanuts, Sugar, Partially Hydrated Vegetable Oils, Salt), Garlic.

I think I have already said how good this is, but it really would be one of my favourite BBQ sauces for chicken, the only problem is that the bottle may not last long enough, at £4.99 a bottle it is not cheap, but well well worth it, Darth and Mrs Naga would just love this stuff.. even on a vegie BBQ, but can I save what is left till they visit next… probably not.. Sorry guys
