Hacking the Goldfish [cheese cracker]


My kids love those little cheese crackers that are in the shape of a goldfish. They are cute and yummy. (The crackers, not the kids) I don't care very much for the crackers. They need a little lift or boast, so I played around with converting the simple goldfish into a spicy pufferfish.




This recipe is one of those kinds of recipe where you add a little of this and a little of that. I made a really small batch, so you could scale up as you see fit. Since I was experimenting, I used my little toaster oven.

I'm looking forward to other variations.

Future ideas to try
  1. Soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil --> Koi
  2. Tomato, onion, cilantro --> Rio grande cuttrought
Spicy Pufferfish Recipe
2 T melted butter2 T hot sauce of your choice (see my yummy sauce below)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t garlic powder
1 t Penzeys Northwoods seasonings
1 C Goldfish crackers

Preheat your oven to 275°. Have a cookie sheet ready.

Mix everything except the crackers together. Toss the sauce with the crackers, but start with a small amount at first to make sure you don't drench your crackers.

Lay the crackers on the cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Keep checking on these fishes. Once they are dried then try them out.
My brother-in-law picked up a bottle of Mamoun's Hot Sauce from their restaurant in New York city. It is fantastic! It is also the ONLY hot sauce I like that has vinegar in the ingredients. I loathe Tabasco sauce because of its too strong vinegar taste. Also in the picture is the seasoning from Penzeys. Did you notice it is suggested to go with fish ?!
