Stubb’s new Anytime Sauces are some serious game changers when it comes to cooking. They can be used as a sauce, marinade, baste, swirled into a dip — the possibilities are virtually endless. Which then begs the question: Where does one start?! Well, I’ve got an option to lead you to delicious dinner success. Well, three options, to be exact.
To showcase the versatility of these new Anytime Sauces, I used it as a marinade, a basting sauce and as a flavorful addition to a dip. While these sauces can obviously be used on chicken, pork, and beef, I chose to use it on fish because I feel that this protein is often overlooked when people think of “barbecue”.
My fish of choice for this tasty recipe testing was cod because it is firm, so it bakes, grills, and fries very well. I chose the Texas Sriracha Anytime Sauce because of its subtle sweet and spicy notes — it’s like a Southwestern version of the classic Asian condiment without being overly spicy.
First, I marinated some cod fillets overnight in Texas Sriracha Anytime Sauce and oven-baked them. Next, I grilled cod fillets and basted them with the sauce. Finally, I made fish fingers by cutting cod fillets into strips and breading them with flour, egg, and crunchy Panko bread crumbs before frying them to crispy perfection. I used the Texas Sriracha sauce to mix into a dipping sauce for the fish sticks, giving it the perfect kick of flavor and spice.
Try out these dishes with the Texas Sriracha or any of the very versatile Anytime Sauces. They’re great with both proteins and vegetables, adding a punch of flavors to kick up any type of meal.
