Mango sauce is a very common island sauce, particularly the Pacific islands such as Hawaii, where they typically match a sweet & savory sauce with roasted pork, fish, grilled shrimp, or chicken. There is always a spicy pepper element to these island sauces – the Serious Foodie version uses the combination of the wonderfully fruity Aji Amarillo and Aji Crystal peppers. The sauce is well-balanced – that is, not overly spicy – using complimentary flavors of orange, lemon, lime, and fresh cilantro.
We suggest that you combine this sauce with any meat or fish while cooking – or simply add it at the end of cooking as a condiment. It can be used as a grilling sauce for shrimp, or to glaze pork, chicken, or fish. Or it can be used to braise meat. Our on-line recipe suggestions will open up a world of possibilities for this luscious sauce.
