Let Your Palette Be Your Guide
With Sriracha Seasoning Stix, your palette is your guide as kitchen preparation has been simplified and cooking possibilities seem endless. Preparing sea scallops by adding a seasoning stick through the center that is the size of the scallop and sauteéing it in cooking oil is a perfect example of an easy and quick meal. By adding another seasoning stick to the cooking oil, it will increase the external flavor and spiciness. Served with your choice of brussel sprouts, white rice and other side dish your meal will be a complete masterpiece in almost no time at all!
As shown in the recipe mentioned, Sriracha Seasoning Stix can be inserted right through the center of a sea scallop so that is bursting with flavor. If you love to turn up the heat by adding a little spice to your meals you can break the stick and use the entire stick in one portion, or use half if not smaller if you or someone at your table prefers a less spicy option. It is entirely up to you!
Now you have the option of creating a gourmet inspired home cooked meal to really impress yourself or those you are cooking for. Adding savory flavor can also be added to sauces and dressings by using a piece of the seasoning stick as it dissolves.
Restaurant Style Meal Additions
We have all been to a restaurant and wondered what did the chef put into an item to make it so tasty. For savory type of foods, which are typically considered salt-based, adding in a little Sriracha can make the world of a difference. Simple items such as a Spicy Ketchup or Chipotle Mayonnaise have never been easier now with the help of literally putting in a little Sriracha!
Just The Seasoning
That is another great point with Sriracha Seasoning is that it does not add a lot of extras to a meal or snack other than warm savory flavor. When Sriracha is used with almost any food item, all you are adding is the flavor, not much else. This is a bonus if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle using simple ingredients.
Living and eating healthy on the go is not always easy, however, now it can be. For the days when you want to cook something tasty but still on the healthy side and not full of a long list of added ingredients then Sriracha Stix are the perfect go-to item. It can spice up your life in so many ways from sea scallops, tofu, spicy ketchup, or chipotle mayonnaise.
