Tabasco Chocolate Sundae

Of each of my three courses, the dessert was the most difficult to come up with. If I were to ask you to come up with a dessert recipe for Tabasco, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Personally, it was chocolate. Brownies might have worked but they’re just not a dessert. I considered cheesecake but just wasn’t convinced, ditto melt in the middle puds. The eventual conclusion I arrived at was that I would just have to make a chocolate sauce. Because chilli + chocolate = goodness right? You can replace pretty much all the ingredients (bar the chocolate sauce, duh) with something that suits your taste 100% BUT I really recommend not skimping on the quality of the ice cream, it’ll make a big difference. Serves 2 100g dark chocolate 50ml whipping cream 25g butter 1 tbsp Tabasco 2 tbsps caramel (Carnation will do) handful honey-roasted nuts 4 scoops good quality vanilla ice cream To make the chocolate sauce, slowly melt the chocolate and cream in a pan then take off the …

Tabasco Chicken Satay

Another recipe? So soon? Yes, get used to it I’m back on form. Unless you’re an actual goldfish, you’ll remember that yesterday I posted my first #FunWithFlavour recipe using green pepper tabasco.  I’m back today with the main course, and I’m kicking the heat up a notch with this one (to straight up normal Tabasco).. a decent satay sauce is one of my favourite things to knock up in the kitchen, it takes all of 30 seconds and makes for a killer packed lunch component. Another one of my favourite things? A cheeky order of aromatic duck from my local Chinese takeaway, hence the spring onion/cucumber combination. So this is kind of a mash up and I love love love it, so does the rest of my family. A word on the chicken: if you’re buying breasts (haha) from your butcher, cook ’em for 25 minutes at Gas 6 (ish, my oven is not a good one to set guidelines from but I do what I can) and leave them to cool. Then literally just …

Spiralised Cucumber with Tabasco Yoghurt Dressing, Feta and Pomegranate

If you’re big on hot sauce, you might wanna stay tuned on Cate in the Kitchen over the next few days because I’m using Tabasco sauce to have a whole lot of #FunWithFlavour – a three course meal of fun. That’s right, three courses. Tonight I’m introducing you to my starter, tomorrow you’ll meet the main course and on Monday you’ll be drooling over my dessert – excited? Me too. Before Tabasco invited me to take part in this awesome campaign, I’d never considered it as more than a very welcome addition to my favourite pizzas; so it was super fun to come up with some creative ways to use it in three different courses. The first of my Tabasco recipes is insanely light, so damn healthy and totally delicious, so without further ado… Serves 2 1 cucumber, spiralised 150g plain yoghurt 1 tbsp green pepper Tabasco 2 tsps chopped mint 100g feta 4 tbsps pomegranate seeds  If you happen to have a spiraliser, you should be looking at a plate of beautiful cucumber ribbons already. …
