Spicy Mango Dipping Sauce

We made this sauce last night as a dipping sauce for our Shrimp and Mango Egg Rolls. It is very spicy, but in a good way. In order to moderate the heat, you could omit (or reduce) the 1 tbsp of Asian hot sauce without losing the essence of the sauce or consider turning this into a cream sauce if it is still too spicy.

Tonight the Spicy Mango Sauce was reinvented as a marinade for chicken. It would have made an excellent wing sauce, but we were cooking chicken breasts tonight, not wings. It vaguely reminds me of the mango habanero sauce from a popular chain of chicken wing outlets.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, peeled, pit removed
  • 1 tbsp Asian hot sauce, we used Sriracha
  • 2 tbsp sweet Thai chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • Splenda or an alternate sweetener to taste

Directions:

  • Peel the mango, and cut away from the pit, place the fruit in a food processor.
  • Add in the hot sauce, chili sauce, honey, sea salt and pepper.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Serve chilled.
