Mr Singh's and Spam
I’ve been eyeing up a tin of spam in my cupboard for weeks now, tempting me when I reach in for some flageolet beans or some other low GI pulse de jour. To add to the sleaze factor I’ve been waiting to test a bottle of Mr Singh’s Hot Punjabi Chilli Sauce as well.
Well fuck it I thought... If you are going to be bad at least do it in style! Mr Singh’s is no Holy Fuck Hot Sauce but it served its purpose well in my sandwich. Definitely what I’d call a Kebab house sauce with lashings of Birds Eye Chilli and Tomatoes all sharpened up nicely with malt vinegar, molasses and soy.
I’d recommend using it with some fatty lamb shoulder or chops charred on the fierce heat of a grill or barbecue. The sharp flavour and gentle heat of the sauce would cut through the fatty lamb well and it definitely deserves to be used in a more glamorous setting than this cheap white bread and spam combo.
