Homemade Thousand Island: what type of chili sauce?
I have a craving for shrimp louis salad, so I looked up a few recipes for thousand island dressing. Nearly all of them call for 'chili sauce', and this is where I am a little stumped. Do they mean spicy chili sauce like sriracha or tabasco? or the not-hot-at-all stuff like Heinz chili sauce? I am guessing the mild stuff, but wanted to check with the chowhounds
the recipe means heinz chili sauce, which to me is nothing more than a less-sugary ketchup, with spices, including hot chiles (but little of those, imo).
tabasco is called a "hot pepper sauce" typically. sriracha is chile and pepper sauce.
why not try a "split" batch of shrimp louis dressing, using the sriracha (plus some tomato paste, i'd add) in one, and the heinz chili sauce in the other.
<i recall that the shrimp louis dressing made with mayo, chili sauce, etc. is really a (quickie) remoulade>
...consider this recipe for shrimp boil with remoulade -- the spicing in the remoulade will give you ideas < i think> about what flavor profile you seek in your louis sauce. http://www.ajc.com/services/content/l...
>>>For the remoulade dipping sauce:
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup creole mustard
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped, white and green
1 teaspoon Tabasco, or to taste
2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
1 1/3 cups canola or vegetable oil
Process all ingredients except oil. Then, slowly stream in oil and pulse till smooth.
