    Kinda inspired by an off the cuff comment in the Source thread..

    What's your favourite sauce for the following:

    1) Pasta
    2) Chips
    3) Fish

    In order..

    1) Smooth wine and mushroom sauce for pasta
    2) HP Sauce for chips (nothing better!)
    3) Home made tartare sauce for fish


    Go team...

    1) anything with meat and cheese, I like an artery hardening pasta sauce
    2) Maggi Sweet Chili Tomato Sauce
    3) Depends on the fish. Battered fish - tartare (just ate this for lunch, bloody lovely). Posh fish - probably lemon / butter / white wine. Again, depends. I love fish curry too.

    I spent freakin' ages making a smokey sausage sauce for some bangers around bonfire night last year. Chilis, peppers, onions, soy, honey, garlic, sherry and whole bunch of other crap.

    Mouse tries some of it and said "BBQ sauce, nice." NO!

    1) Carbonara
    2) Tomato and only tomato. Anyone putting mayo or salad cream on chips
    should be shot.
    3) Seafood sauce on prawns is nice.

    1) Pasta
    2) Chips
    3) Fish

    In order..

    1) I'm a sucker for tomato based sauce on Pasta, but not just any old shit, I absolutley love Bertolli tomato and basil.

    2) HP's all good. I'm also very fond of Nando's Peri Peri barbaque. Oh and Heinz Ketchup obviously. Oh and there's this chilli sauce you can get, I forget the brand, comes in a large bottle with yellow labels, thats stuff is lovely.

    Edit - YES ! Cheers Smoothpete, Its Maggi, thats the stuff !

    3) Tartare definaley, although i've never tried making it myself. Depends what the fish is really, having Tuna steaks drizzled with lemon tonight, that works very nicely :)

    1) all sorts of stuff
    2) mint, it works, try it. I was unconvinced but have seen the light.
    3) don't eat fish, which is probably just as well given today's headlines!

    I'm partial to HP's chili sauce for adding to most things instead of brown/ketchup, it's rather good.

    I'm no stinkin' veggie. I'm allergic to meat protein.

    I've absolutely no idea why fish doesn't affect me but I am glad it doesn't otherwise by now I'd be a gibbering wreck.

    3) Fish - If you mean fried fish See 2) otherwise, depends on the fish. usually very little if it's good quality fish.

    I'd like to add 4) Bacon Sarnies - HP
    Apparently there are some sick fucks who put tomato sauce on bacon sarnies!





    Oi I resemble that remark! You can't seriously put brown sauce on a bacon sarnie, no way! Has to be RED RED RED.

    1) Arrabiata
    Mmm, did my own the other day. I was a little too skimpy on the garlic but just right with the chilli.

    For everything else I usually put on my home-made tomato chilli and olive chutney/salsa which is piss easy to make.

    200ml Tomato juice (I usually save the juice from tinned tomatoes and use this)
    Two medium sized sliced chillies (remove pith and seeds if you don't want it hot)
    1 small onion, diced
    2 tbsp sugar
    Vinegar
    8 pitted and sliced green olives
    1 lime, juiced. Save the rind
    Chilli powder
    Salt

    1. Put the sugar and enough vinegar to dissolve the sugar into a pan, add the chopped chillies and turn the heat on.
    2. Once the vinegar is bubbling add the onion. Simmer until the onion has gone translucent.
    3. Add the tomato juice, lime juice, lime rind and olives. Add salt and chilli powder to taste.
    4. Reduce until the mixture is quite firm.
    5. Remove the lime rind, cool the mixture and store it.

    Nando's garlic piri sauce all over everything evar.

    Edit: And putting brown sauce on bacon is wrong - all you can taste is brown sauce! A little ketchup goes much better. Brown sauce is for sausages, and I won't hear any different.

    1) Any decent homemade/restaurant sauce, jars etc FTL.
    2) Peptang: tasty chilli sauce my brother brings me from Kenya.
    3) Depends on fish, but Peptang chilli is surprisingly good on most.
