Hell’s Fury Hot Sauce


  • 1 cup diced ripe mango or frozen mango puree
  • 1 to 6 Scotch bonnet chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt (sea or kosher), or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

Recipe Steps

Step 1: Combine all the ingredients in a nonreactive saucepan and cook, uncovered, over medium heat until the mango and onion are soft, 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and process to a coarse puree. Correct the seasoning, adding salt or brown sugar. Transfer the sauce to a jar. You can use it right away, but the flavor will improve if you let it age for a few days. Cover and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several days. Shake well before serving.
