Chili (several varieties) and tropical fruit are a great combination. And the exotic sweetness pairs perfectly with this simple pineapple sauce. The fruity flavor goes well with chicken, fish or even salads. Or use it as a cracker ladle or tortilla wrapper. The salty taste makes the flavors of tropical fruit even more vibrant.
This sauce is surprisingly thick due to the consistency of the pineapple. even when you mix it up the sauce still has a bit of texture. some people like it some people can’t If you are a latecomer Pour the sauce through a sieve for a smoother result. You can also use cheesecloth and let the sauce sit for a few hours to thicken.
for heat We use a mix of Serrano red pepper (10,000 to 23,000 Scoville heat units) and cayenne pepper powder (30,000 to 50,000 SHU) in our Pineapple Sauce recipe here. They put just the right amount of spiciness in the sauce here. And the red serrano has a natural sweetness that goes well with pineapple.
But feel free to experiment. If you want more spicy sauce, good choices are habanero or scotch peppers. Both of these peppers have increased spiciness (100,000 to 350,000 SHU) and both have tropical fruit sweetness rather than serrano sweetness. These peppers go well together. Just be prepared for a big spike in spiciness. You may want to skip the cayenne pepper if you come here.
