East Meets West Caliente Wrap

Today's recipe post is sponsored by Lucky Foods Korean Sauces

Get your taste buds to dance with this amazing tasting East meets West Wrap. I love fusion cooking and constantly experiment to come up with new variations. This wrap fuses the spicy favors of Korean sauces with Mexican style ingredients.  The Korean Kimchi Mayo sauce delivers just enough spiciness to be a great substitute for the more common Mexican sauces we are all used to. Add the flavors of the sea by using cooked shrimp and pair it with fresh garlic, fresh cut cilantro, beans and  rice and you will be surprised how tasty it will become.

For the Ingredients ( serves 2) you will need the following:

kimchi mayo sauce

  • 3-4 TBSP  Kimchi Mayo from Lucky Foods

        A bit of info about today's Lucky Foods Korean Sauces

        Lucky Foods is built on the foundation of family, sharing of the Korean culture through food and the pursuit of the American dream. The founders family immigrated to the United States in the ’70s. Speaking little English, their grandmother chose to provide for her family by doing what she did best, preparing wholesome Asian foods. What started as a single restaurant later became a manufacturer for original products, Lucky Spring Rolls.

        Today, Lucky Foods is still family-owned-and-operated. In addition to their popular Spring Rolls, the company has expanded their product line to share more of their family’s Korean recipes through their Seoul brand.

        In the video you can see that the sauce container is about 12.35 oz. The creamy sauce is packed with flavor and ideal as a dipping sauce. Hubby and I really loved the spiciness and will be buying more of this sauce to use in other recipes. I can even see this as a marinate for steak or chicken on the BBQ.

        You can find the sauces via Amazon
