A Fischer & Wieser Sauce Review From A Gourmet Chef

  • Apr 9, 2009
  • by
To be sure, I am a self admitted food snob. Moreso and especially when it comes to really any pre-packaged and bottled sauces, salad dressings, gravies and the like.

I am a gourmet chef and make my own sauces, salad dressings, gravies and many more items that people don't like to, don't know how to or just plain won't take the time to cook or make themselves.

This is the first Fischer & Weiser sauce product that I have tried and found it to be a really decent, fresh tasting, all natural/no preservative product.

I first used it as a finishing sauce for grilled chicken breasts - DELISH! Then I tried it with a grilled pork tenderloin - Another A+ dinner! I made a very nice salad dressing with the sauce and mixed it with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper - A WONDERFUL& LIGHT DRESSING CHOICE! I warmed some in the microwave poured it over a block of cold cream cheese and served with crackers - A PARTY APPETIZER HIT! I even served it as a dipping sauce to my granddaughter with her chicken nuggets - ANOTHER MEAL ENJOYED!

The predominate flavors in this sauce are ripe mangos, honey, and just a tiny touch of habanero peppers. This sauce is very light on the ginger flavor as ginger can be really overpowering if not used correctly.

This sauce is a really great combination of sweet and spicy, is very versatile and I would definitely try some of Fischer & Weiser's other products that they sell.

Happy Cooking!

I never use this brand before along with any type of marinade sauce, but the ingredients impressed me like the mango, sugar, honey, ginger, habanero, spices.     The only downside to this is that it could have gone easier on the sweetness, particularly given that the main ingredient is a fruit. Mango already has lots of sugar, and the ingredients section lists sugar as the second ingredient, with honey added as well. Personally I think that's a little bit over the top. On the …

Let me open by explaining something: I believe that good cooking requires some subtlety. A little restraint perhaps. But there's a school of cooking that seems to think that all you really need to make good food is to either a) deep fry it or b) pour a hell of a lot of sauce all over it. The actual food you're cooking seems to be fairly unimportant, taking a back seat to the fry-a-lator or the sauce-o-squirter. Fischer & Weiser Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce would fit right into a kitchen like …

I have mainly used this product to marinade chicken breasts; we have used it for grilling three times so far this spring/summer. The flavor is fantastic. My husband is the grilling king, but even he gives some credit to the sauce, the chicken breasts have been so tender and juicy.    The sauce is sweet with a little heat. None of the flavors are overpowering and the combination is surprisingly superb. The combination of sweet Mango), heat (Habanero) and the little kick of spice …

I really enjoyed the versatility of the Fischer and Wieser Raspberry Chipotle sauce and was anxious to try a few of the other sauces in this line. I didn't do quite as much experimenting with the Mango Ginger Habenero Sauce, but tried it in several different ways. First, I used it for broiling pork chops. That was really good and the sauce brought out the sweet flavor of the meat. Then I used it to glaze cornish game hens - another big success. The zip of the sauce did not overpower the delicacy …

Absolutely love this sauce! My kids don't like anything hot, and even they were dipping chicken fingers into this tasty Mango Ginger Habanero sauce!    Works great with anything dippable. We never got around to using it for marinating anything (need another bottle!) It was excellent with chicken, and it certainly broke up the "oh, chicken again?" you hear midweek when you're running out of creative ideas for dinner.    Highly recommend, esp. for the person …

It really hasn't warmed up enough yet to grill, so that bottle has been sitting on our counter patiently waiting.    We like the ingredient list - healthy and natural.    I could not find an expiration date on the bottle - that bothers me a little.     We'll edit this review when it warms up a bit :-)

They claim this sauce is Latin   From the southern hemisphere   But the ginger and vinegar   Give it Oriental flair     The sugar and the honey   Hit your taste buds right away   While the mango and the ginger   Add a delicate bouquet     A touch of Habanero   Gives the mix a little zing   But the hardy pepperholics   Will say "Sauce, where is thy sting?"     I'd …

I've used this sauce with rice and with scrambled eggs. In both cases the taste is excellent but extremely sweet. Certainly this is an enjoyable product, but all that sugar can't be real healthy. I was expecting some spice from the habanero (which I normally love) but the sweet sugar overwhelms the habanero.
