This week we’re trying a pretty simple sauce. It’s so simple it goes on either broiled fish OR baked potatoes.

I somehow don’t find that combination to be particularly reassuring.

And only has four ingredients… wait, wait wait wait.

lemonade

Does this really call for thawed lemonade concentrate?

onion

Lemonade concentrate and onions.

mixing

Lemonade concentrate, onions, and three dashes of hot sauce. All in sour cream.

But once it’s all mixed together, all you really see is the sour cream. Sneaky, huh?

tasting-ergh

Oh wow…”

“What, too sour?”

“No, ugh, too sweet.”

He took another bite, though (brave guy).

“Wait, that bite wasn’t sweet at all. This is weird.”

Verdict: Weird, but not all that bad in small amounts.

Our tasting notes:

The weird collection of ingredients more or less came together, but it only tasted good in very small amounts. It was slightly better on the fish than the potato. On either one, a light layer tastes better than a generous helping. Tweaking the ingredients (lemon juice instead of lemonade concentrate, adding salt) could help make this a lot better.
