Things Are Heating Up

hot sauce in snow

It’s cold outside, I need more hot sauce.  Someone asked me recently what to put it on.  It begs the question, what not to put it on?  Anything salt can do, hot sauce can do better.  Try this recipe to heat things up on Valentine’s Day.

Rock Shrimp Ceviche:

1 pound fresh rock shrimp, cleaned and deveined

1 1/2 cups lime juice, freshly squeezed

1/2 cup tequila

1 cup diced fresh papaya

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped

2 teaspoons sugar or agave

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup diced tomatoes

1/3 cup jicama

1/4 cup chopped scallions

2 tablespoons Jump Up and Kiss Me Original Hot Sauce with Passion*

Lime wedges for garnish

Combine shrimp and lime, mixing well.  Refrigerate for up to 4 hours, stirring frequently, to ‘cook’ the shrimp in the marinade.  Drain marinade from shrimp, and combine shrimp with remaining ingredients.  Garnish with lime.

Serves 4
