Reviewing Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce by Robert Rothschild Farm

 Last week I was hungry for something different.  I thought I wanted salmon. No, I was certain I wanted salmon. But I wanted something different. Something flavorful. I went to my local Costco (which is where I buy my preferred frozen salmon) and happened past a large bottle of beautiful, golden Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce. Initially, I walked past it. In fact, I walked the entire grocery portion of the store trying to decide what to make with my salmon. I was drawn back to the Roasted Pineapple and Habanero sauce and after reading the label, I took it home. I am so glad I did!



I really like savory food. I think heat and spices are delicious. Sadly, what my brain thinks is completely different that when my mouth can tolerate. As soon as I arrived home from the store, and had started the rice cooking, I texted a photo of the Roasted Pineapple and Habanero sauce to my sons.  



Their collective response: "Haha, best of luck!" and "Let me know how that turns out for you."

My response: "It is supposedly mild. I read the label and put the jar back several times before I decided to try it."

More skeptical responses from my sons. 

Fortunately, the sauce was truly "mild". It was also flavorful and delicious. I immediately regretted not having made more servings of salmon. And I craved it during my camping trip over the weekend.

My Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Salmon over Rice

Nothing fancy happens in my kitchen. But I love tasty food. In this case I made white rice (following the directions on the bag and cooking for 20 minutes).  

During that time the rice cooked, I thawed a frozen salmon filet in a container of room temperature water (the frozen salmon filets I buy are individual wrapped which is perfect for me).

I baked the salmon per the instructions, adding just a bit of sauce in the baking dish with the salmon (about 3 tablespoons). 

I served the baked salmon over the cooked rice, salt and pepper to taste, and added about another tablespoon of the sauce over the rice.

YUM!

Robert Rothschild Farm

I purchased my large jar of Roasted Pineapple and Habanero sauce at my local Costco.  You can be sure that I am going to purchase a couple more bottles to add to my pantry and keep them in stock!  You can also find this delicious sauce on Amazon from the Robert Rothschild Farm store.

If you want to know more about Robert Rothschild Farm, you can visit their website. I love all of the products they offer (sauces, salsas, dips, fruit spreads, savory spreads, and more) as well as a few recipes that use their products. In short, the Rothschilds moved from California to Ohio in the 1970s and were committed to their land. They produced more raspberries than they needed and that inspired their recipes and flavor combinations.

After visiting their site, I have a "wish list" of several of their items. 

Side Note:

Many years ago I had a wonderful opportunity to visit Charleston, South Carolina. During that trip, we ate at a little island restaurant. I still sometimes talk about the dish I had there; scallops, mashed potatoes, and "some kind of citrusy/spicy sauce". That was the best tasting dish I have ever eaten and have never had anything like it again. This sauce reminds me very much of that long ago dish. You can be absolutely sure that I am going to learn how to prepare scallops so that I can serve them with this sauce and try to cure that 20-something  year old craving.

  1. Oh Dawn Rae, I'm so glad I slept in a little this morning. You have made my mouth water already and it's just after 7 in the morning! This sauce sounds delicious and like you I like flavorful food. I like hot, but not too hot, so this sounds like it fits into my life quite well too! Thanks for this recommendation, I will look for it the next time I'm out shopping!

    1. Oh. About 7 am ... I have thought about making some of this dish and taking it to work for breakfast! I once visited a family who served rice and beans 3 times a day. I think this salmon version would be fine for breakfast! :)

  3. Before I switched to a ketogenic approach to eating, I loved Robert Rothschild Farms raspberry sauces, jams, and salsas! This roasted pineapple and habanero sauce sounds absolutely amazing.

    1. Sam! I seriously thought of you while tasting this sauce. I wondered how good it might be on the grill ... with grilled meats. When I get a grill again, I am going to try it with meats. But I'm definitely not as skilled as you are in regards to cooking/grilling. (And I bet you make great scallops!)

  5. It is always so wonderful to discover something new and delicious! You said "nothing fancy happens" in your kitchen, yet the reality is your kitchen is where creative lives. I would not have had the courage to try the new sauce, yet I am certain because of your review that it is delicious. I've never tried frozen salmon either. Therefore, you have provided me with a whole new dinner to try and that is awesome! There are definitely nights when I need fast & easy meals.

    1. Aw Ms. Mouse, you are too kind. With the frozen salmon, I have tried other frozen "fresh" fish and really didn't like them. But this Costco brand is sooo good.

  6. Salmon and rice are a good combination anytime, but it sounds as though this citrusy sauce with pineapple and a bit of spicy habanero turns a simple meal into a gourmet dish. Terrific review of this Robert Rothschild sauce. Thanks, Dawn Rae.

  7. We love salmon with rice and it is good to find a new sauce. I cannot take anything too hot and spicy, but I like a good flavour, so from your description of the roasted pineapple and habanero sauce I think I would really like it :) Thank you for a great recommendation!

    1. Raintree Annie, just the tiniest bit of sauce goes a loooong way. Please let me know if you try it and whether or not it is too spicy. I seriously believe I have the world's wimpiest mouth. And I loved this.
