About the Sauce: Nurse sharks are mellow by nature, but large in size, and unlike most other sharks, smooth to the touch. Like the nurse shark, this green Jalapeño sauce has a mellow smooth heat, but huge flavor. Undertones of tomatillo, apple and melon balance the heat from the Jalapeño and Poblano pepper for an approachable, but unforgettable taste.
Uses: Pair this hot sauce with carnitas tacos, scrambled eggs and toast, and it gives chicken a great hearty flavorful kick!

Maker Story: Gabe, the founder of Spicy Shark credits his mom for introducing his family to an eclectic array of cuisines. "The house rule was you didn’t have to like it, but you had to try it. I tried it, and I liked it…all of it. The spicier the better."
"Once I saw Jaws as a kid, I was hooked as a shark addict, but because of awe, respect, and curiosity, not fear. Things changed for me when I went to JawsFest on Martha's Vineyard in 2012. I was able to meet Wendy Benchley, the wife of the late author of Jaws, Peter Benchley. I learned about her organization, Shark Savers, and the horrific destruction our ocean's sharks were experiencing. In recent years, I have become most passionate about helping end the cruel and unsustainable practice of shark-finning. As a shark enthusiast, I am drawing attention to Sharks through our craft hot sauces."
