How spicy is it?
Tiger Saté is a flavorful sauce with moderate heat from fresh habaneros (hot) jalapenos (medium) or pure red pepper flakes (mild). The medium level is comparable to Sriracha sauce in heat, but with added complexity from garlic and lemongrass notes. The spicy level takes it up a notch, similar to habanero-based salsas; the mild sauce has just a bit of heat to complement the fragrance of the fresh ingredients.
Even if you like medium or hot for dipping, you may want to try the mild version for flavoring soups and marinades - it adds a burst of fresh lemongrass and garlic flavor without overwhelming the rest of the ingredients with heat.

What can you eat Tiger Saté with?
The original way to use saté is as a finishing sauce for soups, it also goes well with a lot of different foods. Scrambled eggs and Tiger Saté really elevates a simple breakfast. It's a great dipping sauce for steak, fish, dumplings, tofu, fries, and here in Houston, folks love it with crawfish.
It also works well as a topping to noodles, fried rice, and stir-fries - though we've found it best to add it just before eating; cooking with Tiger Saté tends to boil off the enticing aromas which make the sauce unique.
