Pigskin Shrimp

Pigskin Shrimp

This is such a simple recipe but everyone loves it! Of course, bacon makes everything better.



  1. Soak toothpicks in water while you are prepping.
  2. Partially cook bacon until no longer raw. It should still be very flexible, enough to be wrapped around the shrimp. Remove from pan.
  3. Wrap a strip of bacon around each shrimp and attach soaked toothpick to hold bacon in place.
  4. Preheat the grill on medium or low coals.
  5. Pour sauce into deep bowl that is wide enough to dunk the shrimp.
  6. Dunk each shrimp in sauce and place on the grill.
  7. Cook no more than 5 minutes.
  8. Dunk again and flip to cook the other side.
  9. Repeat the process until the shrimp is cooked and the bacon and sauce are a nice caramelized color.

You can take the heat down by substituting Sticky Sweet or dial it up using Sweet Red Devil Sauce. No rules just bacon wrapped shrimp.

Cornbread Waffles with Pulled Pork and Quick Pickles

Cornbread Waffles with Pulled Pork and Quick Pickles

This recipe is a combination of 3 different Sauce Goddess recipes and was inspired by culinary experiences during a recent trip to Savannah, Georgia. The south has so many great dishes and this combines several savory flavors into one delicious ride one mouthful at a time.


    Maple butter
  • 1 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

    Waffles
  1. Make the recipe for Sauce Goddess Corn Pudding.
  2. Stir in cheese, egg and Sweet Heat Spice Rub. Combine well.
  3. Spray, butter or oil the waffle iron.
  4. Pour in batter and cook according to iron instructions.
    Plate the Feast
  1. Place waffle on a plate.
  2. Add a bit of maple butter
  3. Top with Sauce Goddess Pulled Pork.
  4. Spoon 2 Tbsp of extra sauce over the top.
  5. Add Sauce Goddess Quick Pickles to finish.

Trade out cheddar cheese for a change of flavor, and try different toppings for other taste sensations such as using one of the Sauce Goddess Pepper relishes instead of pickles.

Mexican Marinade and Dressing

The meat will be so tender and have an intense flavor of lime and cilantro. It will be a tiny bit spicy.



  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together.
  3. Done.

Use as a marinade or pork or chicken or beef. Overnight is great to really soak the flavors in. If you want to use it with firm fish, use half the juice or you will “cook” the fish and create ceviche.

Use as a dressing for slaw or salad with tacos. Shown here with mixed slaw with broccoli and cabbage and kale.

Prep Time: 20 minutes ; Yield: 3 cups
