What to do with leftover fish taco sauce?

  • 7

Had a fish taco party yesterday, and a guest brought the sauce. It was delicious, but we still have tons leftover and I'm not sure what to do with it. I think it had sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, cayenne, and salt. Any ideas on how to use it up? Thanks for the help!

  1. Use anywhere you'd use mayo? With burgers, egg salad, etc.?

      1. Dip for vegetables, tortilla chips, pita chips
        Drizzle over grilled chicken, fish, or salmon patties
        Dress a burrito wrap
        Would it be good in tuna salad?

        1. In chicken (added to jerk chicken salad with a touch of brown sugar, scallions and maybe some hot pepper of choice would be killer), turkey or ham salad

          In sweet potato salad and as a base for fruit salad (whisk in some citrus juice for fruit)

          Use in a remoulade sauce for seafood

          Spread on a toasted grilled chicken sandwich (add some provolone or pepperjack for a kick)

          Spread on a Cuban sandwich

          1. Add a good amount of clam or crabmeat, a big spoonful of dill, and finely chopped water chestnuts. Makes the best dip ever.
