sriracha mayo

The Missing Ingredient Challenge: sriracha

Sriracha is a hot sauce originating from Thailand that's essentially a paste of chili peppers, distilled water, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. One popular version of Sriracha is produced by Huy Fong Foods, which has a rooster on its green-topped bottle, hence Sriracha is often referred to as “Rooster Sauce”.


Frequently used as a dipping sauce or condiment, Sriracha was named as the 2010 Ingredient of the Year by Bon App├ętit magazine and its popularity has only increased in the past few years (although it's still a little weird to me to see the Rooster bottle at hot dog carts and small-town burger joints!). Sriracha can also be incorporated into many recipes that call for a hot sauce or chili paste to give it a slightly different kick.

A very tasty use of Sriracha is this extremely simple Sriracha mayo (originally posted as part of my "The Missing Ingredient series over on the foodiepages.blog). Even though it only has two ingredients, it will take your mayonnaise to a whole new level - Paul and I LOVE this mayonnaise alternative.
