Down To Ferment That’s What Shishito Said

You should get familiar with yuzu if you haven’t done so already. Think of it as a combo of a grapefruit, lemon, and manadarin orange. Take that flavor profile and when you mix it with umami powerhouses shitake, black garlic, and miso on top of roasted shishito peppers, you get a hot sauce that sushi and heat lovers have been waiting years for. Flawless in execution, elite in flavor!

The name may say dumpling, but it’s great on sushi (and really all Asian foods). Great Asian flavors – ginger, soy, and orange zest, will take your sushi out of this world! Karma Sauce once again hit a grand slam of galactic proportions. This is our overall best selling hot sauce in our retail locations as the owners and employees of the pharmacies we are located in consistently recommend this sauce to every customer!

Karma Sauce Cosmic Disco

If you really want to crank up the heat, Cosmic Dumpling’s older brother Cosmic Disco is the way to go. You’re going to want to use a lot less compared to Dumpling, because this one is a scorcher (and I absolutely learned this the hard way)! Appearing on Hot Ones 19, celebrities from Kate Hudson to Will Ferrell had to endure the heat right before The Last Dab!

Original price was: $11.99.Current price is: $9.99.

CaJohns Black Garlic Ghost

Black garlic combined with sweet soy make this an obvious choice for a hot sauce for sushi. I know some folks who replace their regular soy sauce altogether and just use this instead! The ghost peppers give it that little extra kick at the end you will surely feel in the back of your throat!

Frog’s Point Sweet Fuji

As Frog’s Point themselves say – “this is what you want on your sushi!” – and we completely agree! Wasabi, soy sauce, garlic, and Frog’s Point own honey are an excellent collection of ingredients to go alongside the heat of the Ghost Pepper. How sweet it is!

Habanero and ginger root gives you the opportunity to experience sweet heat two different ways in one! Habaneros themselves might very well be the tasiest hot pepper there is, but there is something about combining habaneros with freshly pureed ginger that brings out the best in the pepper. The result when doused on sushi? Flavor bliss.
