Top 5 Sriracha-Based Sauces

Top 5 Sriracha-Based Sauces. Just when you thought sriracha sauce couldn't get any better. Click through for recipes!

I’m a little bit obsessed with sriracha sauce.

If you’re not familiar, it’s a hot sauce that is made out of simple enough ingredients: chili, sugar, salt, garlic, and distilled vinegar.

But what it does to a dish is nothing short of amazing.


Eating Sriracha Sauce Plain

Sriracha sauce is awesome on its own. Here are some delicious ways to enjoy it plain:

  • On fried rice
  • On pizza
  • On fried eggs
  • On an amazingly fluffy omelette
  • In homemade Chex Mix (add some sriracha sauce to the seasoning mix + butter for for a spicier version of the popular snack)
  • Mixed with melted butter and drizzled on popcorn
  • Mixed into soups, chili or pasta sauces
  • Mixed into tuna salad or deviled egg filling
  • Mixed into brownie batter or chocolate ganache to give dessert an extra kick

But when I’m feeling like I want something a little extra, I mix sriracha sauce with other sauces and/or condiments such as these:

Sriracha Sauce: The Cost

Another great thing about sriracha sauce (a.k.a. rooster sauce)?

Affordability. I paid right around $3 for the big bottle pictured above.

For a sriracha-sauce fanatic like me, this typically lasts about three months. This is a cheap way to add extra flavor and pizzazz to a dish.

    Sriracha makes an appearance on practically everything at our house! I think your mayo sauce is actually the same one our local sushi place uses for my favorite roll. Honey is a really interesting idea too–maybe as a dipping sauce for some seared tofu? Or a marinade for shrimp skewers on the grill! YAY.
