Our annual Fish Spread Contest was last week and our newest People’s Choice winner was Brian Wilson of Snook’z Professional Bbq. He normally is cooking up ribs but decided to try his hand at smoked fish spread when he heard about our contest. This was his first try at it. We had over 20 participants out with their best and he won over the hearts and palates of the masses.
The secret Mustard Sauce he served it with instead of hot sauce was a fantastic twist to the spread. This secret sauce is Intensity Academy’s Must Thai Spicy Mustard Sauce and is a definite winner.
At first, his response when we asked him for his recipe was…..
Fish, mayo, carrots, onions, celery, peppers …. 9 other secret ingredients and a dash of love and passion. We told he we needed more. Here is his step by step process on his core recipe.
