After a bit of Internet searching, I found a recipe someone had created based on the Wahoo green sauce:
- 1 Bunch Cilantro
- 2 Cloves of fresh garlic
- 2 Limes (Juice only)
- 1/2 C. Half and Half or cream
- 1/2 C. Mayonnaise
- 1/4 tsp. salt or salt to taste
- 1 Poblano pepper washed remove stem and seeds and cut into chunks
When I made it, I ended up adding a bit more salt and pepper to counteract the very strong lime. So when I make it again, I'll probably cut the lime juice by half. I also added about a tsp of cumin - but that's because we really love cumin at our house!
So it's not exactly Wahoo's green sauce. It's creamier and - as some commenters pointed out - higher in calories than the original. It's still pretty darned good.
I served it first on shrimp and rice bowls (cook rice, add a little chopped cilantro, top with shrimp stir-fried in teriyaki sauce and red pepper flakes) and it was delicious. Definitely a match for the pricy Wahoo bowls. Then we had a lot of the sauce left over, so the next night I served it on Gorgonzola beef rollups... that was really good, too. Especially since the Gorgonzola cheese was a bit too strong, so the green sauce counteracted that nicely. Finally, we had baked chicken and rice for dinner last night and it was just a little boring. But spoon a little of that green sauce over both the rice and chicken, add some diced avocado (and a slice of that artisan bread from my last post) and suddenly it was a meal worthy of Father's Day!
