Mabu Mabu - Indigenous Sauces
Mabu Mabu acknowledges the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities who have been gathering, growing, harvesting and using Indigenous ingredients for over 60,000 years on the lands now known as Australia, in particular our chef's cultural heritage; the Komet Tribe of the Meriam People of Mer Island in the Torres Strait.
How to use
- Organic Tomato Sauce - a classic all-rounded. Great with meat, savoury pastries and hot chips (organic tomatoes, bush tomato, powdered mustard, celery salt, garlic powder, onion powder, white vinegar, sugar, pepper, cayenne, salt).
- Green Tomato Hot Sauce - a zesty Mexican style hot sauce that can be used with tacos or as a salad dressing (green tomatoes, bush tomato, jalapeño chillies, fresh coriander, garlic, onion, white vinegar, lime juice).
- Pineapple Hot Sauce - a tropical hot sauce for fish and white meats, or as a salad dressing (chillies, fresh pineapple, fresh coriander, lime juice, white vinegar, salt, sugar).
- Island Marinade - The Torres Strait has a long history of trading with Asian and Polynesian peoples. As a result, you will often find soy sauce in our cooking. Use this marinade to make an outstanding fried chicken or barbecue pork (dark soy, ginger, garlic).
- Organic Sriracha - A south-east Asian style hot sauce with a mild heat. Perfect for those who love to add a dash of chilli to every meal (organic red peppers, carrots, nativepepperberries, chillies, garlic, white wine vinegar, salt).

Mabu Mabu is a term from the Torres Strait that translates to 'help yourself.'Traditionally, a Mabu Mabu is a banquet, shared table or big family meal. It's how we like to enjoy food on the islands: surrounded by the people we love.
