Island Sauce Company Datil Pepper Sauce

We love the Datil Pepper sauce profile, and Island Sauce Company’s version is packed full of the Datil pepper flavor. It’s also very unique in that it’s a very thin sauce – almost like a glaze.

Datil Pepper Sauce from Island Sauce Company

Creator Patricia Wilsher Bunting tells us a “glaze” style sauce is exactly how she envisioned it to be.

Heat: Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars – The natural heat from the Datil peppers has been cut back with the other ingredients. This is a mild – medium sauce.

Overall: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – We wish is was a thicker sauce.

Ingredients: Distilled vinegar, tomato concentrate (sugar, vinegar, salt, onion powder, spice, natural flavors), orange peel concentrate (high fructose corn syrup, orange peel, orange juice from concentrate, sugar, citric acid, pectin, potassium citrate), brown sugar (white sugar with molasses), mustard (water, mustard seed, vinegar, salt, white wine), honey, fresh Datil peppers, lime juice from concentrate, lemon zest and spices.

Texture & Appearance: This bright red sauce is indeed very thin. Great for dipping into, or drizzling onto foods. Useful.

Taste Straight Up: A huge Datil pepper flavor is first and foremost. The sweetness from the sugars and citrus comes in next. Sweet and delicious.

Heat Level: Datil peppers can be hot amongst themselves, but this sauce tempers the heat enough for it to be enjoyable. Mild-medium.

Label/Graphics: Simplistic graphics. I find these to be friendly and inviting, and somewhat mysterious… you never know what you’re going to get when the label is cartoon-y. Friendly.

Taste on food:

We cooked up some crispy wings to try with this sauce. Deep fried wings using our Wings 101 recipe were tossed with the Island Sauce Company’s Datil Pepper Sauce. They came out hot and spicy with some great Datil pepper flavor!

Final Thoughts

We liked this sauce enough to purchase 2 more bottles along with their Smokin’ Mango Sauce.

If you’ve never tried a Datil Pepper sauce, this is a great one to start with. Big flavor, nice heat, and quality ingredients are good reasons to go with Island Sauce Company’s Datil Pepper Sauce.

Patty tells us the sauce is also great on these foods:

  • seafood, steak, chicken
  • chili, breakfast burritos and tacos
