Come on out to Mt. Pleasant, SC
Prominent barbecue blogger Richard Wachtel met us earlier this year at the Fancy Food Show in Washington, DC. We had a great time getting to know Rich and were delighted to share Slatherin’ Sauce with him to evaluate.
Since then we’ve been looking forward to reading Rich’s review of Slatherin’ Sauce. Now the wait is over! And Rich, we thank you because we are thrilled that you love Slatherin’ Sauce. Here’s a short part of what Rich writes about our sauce:
“Once we tasted the barbecue sauce, we wondered what was that perfect combination of sweetness and tangy barbecue flavoring? After taking a look at the ingredients we noticed that the ingredients included Pineapple and Honey. We thought to ourselves, what a interesting but great combination of flavors. One wouldn’t think to use those two flavors together but they surely do work together.”
We would add that Slatherin’ Sauce makes a great barbecue sauce, but why just limit it to that? When I created Slatherin’ Sauce, my vision for it was as a grilling and finishing sauce that can be used in multiple ways. Our fans have told us they love it for so many reasons and have shared their recipes. Our retail sales locations are increasing every day and if you don’t find it on the shelves of your favorite Acme, Fresh Market or Whole Foods, or Kings; let the store manager that you want them to Slather It On and have them get in touch with us.
Thanks again to Rich for sharing the love of Slatherin’ Sauce with his fans and followers!
Blogger Rachel of Rachel’s Reviews and Giveaways recently asked me if we’d be interested in sharing a gift pack of Slatherin’ Sauce with her as a promotion that she could give away on her site. We were delighted to do so because we were sure she’d love the tangy sweet and spicy taste of Slatherin’ Sauce!
“…Slatherin’ Sauce didn’t disappoint. In fact, it genuinely wowed us and my picky husband was singing its praises and asking for seconds…
All of the ingredients on the list are pronounceable real foods, no chemicals or high fructose corn syrup! I just checked the ingredients on a major brand of barbecue sauce in my pantry, and the FIRST ingredient was high fructose syrup. Gross.
…we both loved the flavor and I value my family’s health too much to be consuming large amounts of HFCS. I think this would really wow everyone at our next Gators tailgate (sorry Slatherin’ Sauce, I hope you aren’t Gamecocks fans!).”
Rachel, we’re so delighted that you’ve experienced the delightful taste of Slatherin’ Sauce and are telling your faithful readers about your enjoyment of it that we’ll forgive you for lovin’ the Gators as much as Slatherin’ Sauce.
New ways to use Slatherin’ Sauce
The only note we’d add to your fabulous review is a note to try Slatherin’ Sauce’s super recipes–especially the Spicy Slathered Dark Chocolate Truffles developed by cookbook author Holly Herrick, especially for us. And if you need more inspiration for a whole host of alternatives to your own “Lazy Chicken”, our website has a full range of tempting ways to use Slatherin’ Sauce.
Super fresh fish, garden-fresh tomatoes from the heart of the summer veggie crop, and toothsome, stone ground grits provide a gorgeous backdrop for a sauce prepared with equal parts Original and Spicy Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauces. If you want to step up or step down the heat, go with 100% of each in this truly luscious and easy to prepare recipe. If you can’t find beautiful, fresh fish, substitute another mild, meaty variety such as grouper, sole, flounder or cod. This entire meal comes together easily in less than 30 minutes.
For the grits:
1 cup stone ground yellow grits
4 cups skim milk
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
For the fish and scallions:
Six, 8 ounce filets of salmon, skinned
1/4 cup Original Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauce to glaze
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
2 large bunches of scallions, withered ends and roots removed
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to coat
For the sauce:
1/2 cup Original Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauce
1/2 cup Spicy Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauce
1 cup halved, multi-color heirloom tomatoes (or substitute same quantity coarsely chopped fresh tomatoes)
Begin with the grits. Place the grits, skim milk, salt, pepper and butter in a large saucepan over high heat. Whisk vigorously to combine. Once at a low simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, whisking frequently, until the grits have absorbed the liquid and are thick and creamy. (Note: You can keep the grits warm over a very gently water bath for several hours, adding more milk or liquid as needed. They’re best fresh from the pot, however!)
Meanwhile, light or heat your grill to medium high. You’re shooting for the three second rule with the heat. That is to say, when you hold your hand near the hottest part of the grill, it will take about 3 seconds before it’s uncomfortably hot. Brush both sides of each filet generously with the 1/4 cup Original Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauce. Season both sides generously with salt and pepper. Toss the scallions in a small bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Arrange the glazed fish on the hot grill over the hottest part of the grill. Arrange the scallions off to the side on a slightly cooler part of the grill. Grill, covered, for about three minutes. Turn each filet and toss the onions. Continue cooking for another 2 – 3 minutes or until the fish is just opaque in the center. Remove from the grill, cover lightly with aluminum foil and set aside, briefly. (Note: The fish and onions can also be broiled in the oven under a hot broiler).
Prepare the sauce by combining the two sauces with the tomatoes in a small saucepan. Bring up to a simmer over medium high heat and cook through for 5 minutes to heat through.
To plate, arrange a generous portion of the warm grits on a plate or a shallow bowl. Top with a few grilled onions and a filet. Spoon a couple tablespoons of the warm sauce and tomatoes over the top. Serve immediately. Delicious!
