Hello. I'm looking for a recipe for Toots Shor Hot Box Sauce. I found a few newspaper
clippings mentioning availability of the sauce in stores, but no recipes. Would love
to learn more about this sauce.
I did a rather exhaustive search of my resources, but all I found that mentioned the
hot box sauce were a few newspaper items, such as this one:
The Red Bank, NJ Daily Register, 1968
There is a menu here, but it doesn't mention the fried shrimp or the hot box sauce.:
Bronx Banter Blog
There are a few books about Toots Shor and his restaurant, but none of them appear to
contain recipes. They are mostly about celebrities who frequented the restaurant and
how it was a popular drinking establishment.
I'll post this for reader input.
