Sriracha Recipes: 5 Ways to Use Rooster Sauce

Updated on May 17, 2010

If you like spice, heat and intense flavor, you must try Sriracha chili sauce.

It's found in the United States mostly under the Huy Fong brand, although there are other terrific imported brands available in specialty stores and online.

Here are 5 easy recipes to incorporate sriracha into any cuisine.

#1: Spicy Sriracha Ketchup

Stir sriracha into your favorite ketchup.

Add anywhere from a few drops per cup up to a 1-to-1 ratio, depending on your taste. Sriracha adds not just heat, but also garlicky complexity to a standby condiment.

Try sriracha ketchup on your next hamburger.

#2: Sriracha Mayonnaise

Enliven plain mayonnaise with sriracha.

Simply add a few drops of sriracha to two tablespoons of mayonnaise. The resulting spicy mayo will keep in the fridge for two weeks.

Try sriracha mayonnaise on your next sandwich, in a potato salad, or as an accompaniment to shrimp or crab.

#3: Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are easy and incredibly delicious with sriracha.

Use sriracha in place of cayenne in your favorite recipe, and then add a dot to the top of each egg.

For a super-fast alternative, just add a few dashes of sriracha on top of over-medium eggs.

#4: Sriracha Chicken Wings

Buffalo wings move to Thailand.

Rather than using Tabasco sauce in your Buffalo wings recipe, substitute sriracha. The resulting flavor is more complex, slightly garlicky, and less vinegary than the original recipe.

For a healthy substitute to Buffalo wings, marinate boneless, skinless chicken breasts in buttermilk spiked with sriracha. Grill and serve with blue cheese dressing blended with nonfat greek-style yogurt. Want more heat? Spike the dressing with sriracha, too!

#5: Sweet-Hot Sriracha Dipping Sauce

Honey ... meet sriracha.

So easy, so addictive. Just mix together honey and sriracha in equal parts. The result is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Use as a drizzle or dip for french fries, chicken, cheese, pork, fish ... or your fingers.

If you're new to sriracha, start slowly. You can overwhelm the other flavors in your food if you use a heavy hand. Add a drop or two to start, then adjust as needed.

WARNING: You may become highly addicted to sriracha once you start.
