We made potato salad using the BBQ Spice Shot and were not disappointed.

It was delicious, easy to prepare, and would be the perfect addition to your table at the next family barbecue or laid out on the picnic blanket when you’re on the go.

Although we don’t like super spicy food, this Spice Shot adds a nice kick without being overpowering and can be added to a variety of dishes.

We made a chicken stir fry using the Japanese Style Spice Shot and recommend it.

The meal was quick to prepare and easy to cook. The flavor was certainly one our taste buds had no complaints about, but we think it might be best to add a little more than the recommended two teaspoons for a stronger flavor.

The stir fry is a great meal to add the Spice Shot to and it’s something we see ourselves making for our tea again.
