We once again managed to secure some of this wonderful UK-grown rarity. It’s not as fiery as its grown-up cousin, the red ghost, meaning we could tone this down a bit and even add some pineapple to make it fruitier. This time around, we also put some lychee in, making it a very well-rounded sauce.
Why the strange name? Well, Catford Fire grew up in Hong Kong, and “gweilo”, or “white ghost” is a term well-used amongst the locals for Westerners… It was the perfect name.
You know those evenings when you happily consume a whole family bag of tortilla chips and aren’t even sorry? Well, this would make the perfect accompaniment to one of those satisfying events. We kept the ingredients super pared back, allowing the more subtle flavour to shine through.
For those of you looking for something fiery, but not as crazy, this one’s for you.
