Garlic Sauce

Garlic Sauce is the epitome of sauces in close ranks with all the other sauces and chutneys we make here on the island. Basically a sauce used in our famous bake and shark  it now has an island wide appeal and accompanies nearly every trini dish possible.

I can’t get enough of this sauce when I’m eating out and I believe everyone has their own spin on it. Some may have a different base like olive oil to start with but somehow in the end when the emulsion is made it has that distinctive yet very appealing “garlicky” taste we all like.

Perhaps the sauce was just a local spin on the tartar sauce usually served at those English fish and chips restaurants. We may never know. But, as with most recipes the origins  get lost over time and takes on a different persona in different cultures.

Garlic sauce with a simple twist

With that said here is a simple twist to the normal garlic sauce. We like to make it with mayonnaise as a base instead of the usual olive oil. It is as if you are upgrading the regular mayonnaise you buy at the grocery store. It tastes great and adds an extra zest to any salad.

I like this sauce because it helps me enjoy my salads a lot more since I became aware of the many benefits of garlic. A plain lettuce salad does not really scare me, but for me the the garlic sauce makes it taste even better. This garlic sauce also has the herbs I love (chadon beni and chive) and makes it special. Truly trinierized!

Last post I made a salad and poured this garlic sauce over it and I have been getting emails for the recipe ever since, so for those who are wondering how I made it here it is. I hope you like it as much as I do. Here’s Garlic Sauce my style; trinistyle.

    I am not sure the garlic sauce will taste the same as at Maracas Bay since we did our own twist to it; I added chadon beni and some lime juice. But you could still try it and tell me what you think.:-)
