Hot August Nights and...

If you remember this album you can say you are a fan of wine and patio parties transferred to a concert lawn.

Bring back those carefree days.

Instead of the Boones Farm, try a almost white or pale yellow to moderate wine to conquer /complement the heat in the air and the food...




If you are adventurous go with the Champagne.


Bubbles in wine and champagne cam assist in smoothing the heat !!

And Heat in this fish baste/sauce elevates a white fleshed fish .win- Win!!

Make tacos with this! Drink some Grenache

Start by accompanying a cod grilled and basted with a tangy sauce

You have a grown up palate-

And instead of another round of siracha (so 2008 )

Make your own Elote Sauce. Its very 2022 and on the same side of the Globe.

Elote sauce is a bit of a misnomer: Elotes means corn on the cob in Mexico and eating Elotes in their sauce is a street food right of passage.

What makes this a Hot August Night is the cooking of your ordinary white fleshed fish transformed / flavored with a little bit of culinary heat.


2 tablespoons of Slap Your Mama Original Cajun Powder (Medium heat)

1 Cup of Mayonnaise

1 teaspoon of Black pepper

1teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon curry

2 teaspoons of lime juice or lemon juice

1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon of chili powder or cayenne pepper

Mixing in a bowl

Slap Your Mama Original Cajun Powder, mayonnaise, black pepper, lemon or lime juice, cinnamon, curry, chili powder or cayenne pepper.


Smear the Elote sauce over the fish fillets before tossing them into tacos and sandwiched between cornbread slices

If you do cornbread , you spread the sauce on the bread first!

Your white fish choices : halibut, mahi mahi, snapper, cod, bass and tuna

Grill Option

  • Preheat grill for 400- 450 degrees F which is medium-high heat.

  • Spray on oil is ok on the grill or skillet (depends on how broken up your fillets)

  • Grill until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side (assuming 1/2 inch fillets)

Oven Option

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F . Use a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  • Bake until cooked through, about 10 – 15 minutes (fish should flake easily with a fork).

In any case your food can also be drizzled with this sauce . Just drink more champagne.
