Pirate Panic Hot Sauce Devil’s Fish has a strong peppermix: Ghost, scorpion, habanero and Scottish pepper. On paper, it’s a lot of guts that can literally scare you, as the label says. But does the flavour of Pirate Panic – which consists of a puree of tangerines and bloody oranges – match the heat? And how useful is this hot sauce? Let’s see what the treasure Panic Pirate Hot Sauce really has in its hands.
Let’s look at the list of ingredients first, because… There’s a lot of them: Water, tangerine puree, carrot, blood orange puree, yellow onion, habanero peppers, white wine vinegar, tomato puree, agave nectar, rice vinegar, ghost pepper (Bhut jolokia), Trinidad scorpion pepper, ginger, basil, salt, xanthan gum, Scottish pepper powder, ascorbic acid, kaffir lime leaf powder.
There are several options in this list. Orders first. In the panic of the pirates there are a few chillies, but they are not at the top of the list of ingredients. That means their heat is pretty diluted. Then there are tons of citrus fruits, so it is expected to be a driving force in terms of taste. And so it is.
Devil’s Fish Pirate cuisine panic sauce on a spoon
From the first bite, this tangerine and bloody orange with a citrus flavour (but not too sweet) hits the tongue. This flavor is enhanced by white wine and rice vinegar, while there is a hint of exotic flavor (this rice vinegar and ginger). There is also a touch of classic garden freshness with the addition of tomato puree, carrots, onions and basil.
The fact that you get everything that tastes good tells you where the sweet pepper is in the total balance. That doesn’t mean it’s a mild sauce – far from it, think of it as a medium-high or super hot sauce. But all those big names on the list tend to support, not the stars of taste.
Pirate panic also has a low sodium content of only 5 mg per serving. And crazy as a salt addict, I didn’t even notice! There is so much going on with this sauce that you might not even notice the missing bite of salt. You may not need anything for the food you use, which is crazy for me! It is an excellent sauce for those who want to reduce the sodium intake without compromising the taste.
Let’s start painting like a pepperoni in pirate panic:
- Pepper Habanero (100,000 – 350,000 Scoville heaters)
- Scottish pepper with cap (100,000 – 350,000 SHU)
- Phantom pepper (855,000 – 1,041,427 SHU)
- Trinidad Sea Scorpion (1 200 000 – 2 000 000 SHU)
It is an excellent mix of super hot and super spicy peppers. Compare this with jalapeño peppers at about 2,500 to 8,000 SHU and you’ll see how extreme this spicy sauce can be. It’s hot, sure, but not super hot. Imagine it’s a spice at the bottom of the fresh habanero and you’re in a baseball stadium (maybe a little more, maybe a little less).
For me it’s an excellent herb for the taste of this sauce. Citrus fruits and sweet aromas are central, which is enhanced by the heat. And all the peppers here also have a delicious sweetener. They feel like having such a citrus-like aroma as a basis for the sauce.
About the food: The heat hits you at the first bite in the throat, which is a good warning to take it easy and build up gradually. hurry to think, not to pour. The tongue warms up after a few bites, but fortunately the bite doesn’t take too long or too much. It is a superior thermal sauce that you can always come back to if you walk slowly and steadily.
Ease of use
Pirate panic works very well in chickens. In fact, it’s as good as wing sauce. The citrus aroma adds a tropical note to every dish you cook. I also tried it with pork, and it really added a nice smelling piece. It also works as an additive in pasta sauce, improving both spiciness and taste.
Yet citrus sauces go so far. They are generally not as practical as sauces for everyday use, such as Sriracha, because their taste can get out of hand. The pirate panic may not be as big because it is less sweet than any other citrus-based sauce, but it is still a quid pro quo for the benefits.
This bottle nose is about 2.5 cm thick, and as it is of medium thickness, Pirate Panic comes out evenly. But don’t take it as an encouragement to dive into that record, because then you might end up in sheer panic. Drive slowly and confidently with this bad boy, and he will reward you with a wonderful journey across the seven seas.
The parchment label, the pirate writing and the bottom of the sea monster – it all plays with the name Pirate Devil’s Fish’s Panic. It’s cool, but a little skinny. If you take the bottle in your hand and really look at it, you can see how nice the label is. But from a distance, this parchment colour gives way to other spicy sauces from the super collection on the market. It’s a little treacherous.
Pirate Sauce Devil’s Kitchen Panic Hot Sauce combines a great citrus flavour with a star list of extra/super hot chillies. The end result is more balanced than you think and very fragrant!
