“This is a wonderful dipping sauce like the one you'll find at Red Lobster, served with their Parrot Bay Coconut Shrimp. One of the times I've had this at the restaurant I was with a bunch of friends, and - on a whim - we dipped everything we'd ordered in it... and it ALL tasted good in it. Even the broccoli! :) From then on, we called it "crack."”
