This Spicy Seafood Boil Sauce is packed with flavor and pairs perfectly with a variety of fish and shellfish. But don’t let the name fool you, it also pairs well with a host of other things like sausage and chicken. Oh, and bread. In fact, you should go ahead and double the amount of bread or rolls you were going to serve. I promise you want extra to sop up all of this spicy, buttery goodness!
