This popular Middle Eastern hot sauce goes by many spellings and pronunciations, depending on region and language. It's known as schug, zhug, and skhug, and it might be red, green, or brown. But there's one consistent characteristic among all versions and spellings of this condiment: It's hot. The sauce is made from fresh red or green hot peppers and is seasoned with garlic, coriander, and cumin. Then fresh herbs such as parsley and cilantro are added. A brown schug is usually a green pepper variety with tomatoes added in. FEATURED VIDEO How to Make Homemade Five-Spice Powder Unlike hot sauces, which are primarily designed to add heat, schug is a very fresh and brightly flavored sauce. The combination of herbs, spices, and lemon give it an extraordinary flavor, one that's an ideal complement when drizzled over roasted vegetables, grilled meats, fish, chicken, or even eggs. Serve with pita bread, grilled vegetables and meat, and sour cream or yogurt. Its flavor is not dependent on heat, so if you shy away from hot, spicy foods, don't avoid schug. Simply use fewer peppers and be sure to remove the seeds and veins, which removes some of the heat but preserves the pepper's flavor.
