Horseradish Habanero Cream

In Hot Sauces by Dave DeWittLeave a Comment

This creamy sauce delivers a double punch, from the horseradish and the habanero chile. Serve it as an accompaniment to grilled salmon, poached fish, prime rib, or even corned beef. Horseradish is very volatile and loses its flavor and aroma quickly, so this sauce should be made just before serving.

Fiery Horseradish Cream Ingredients

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons habanero pulp


  1. Combine the sour cream, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl and beat until stiff. The cream will become very thin just before it starts to peak.
  2. Stir in horseradish and habanero pulp and serve.
