Spicy Sriracha Mayo is one of our favorite sauces any time of the year.
You are going to love dipping into this spicy mayo sauce if you liked my Yum Yum Sauce!
Learn in this post how to make sriracha mayo get some ideas.
What is Sriracha Mayo?
Sriracha Mayo is made of Mayonnaise, Sriracha and can contain other flavor enhancing ingredients.
Sriracha is a spicy chili dipping sauce that originated in Thailand.
It’s also known as the rooster sauce because the original has unmistakably a rooster depicted on the bottle.
The spicy chili sauce has gained in popularity around the world, and especially in the west where over time it has been enjoyed with non-Asian dishes as well.
Sriracha Mayo uses
I have found a ridiculous amount of uses for this hot and creamy sauce.
I either use it as a dip or as a sauce over foods.
Most of the time people limit themselves by serving it as a homemade sushi sauce, which, by serving it this way, doesn’t do the spicy mayonnaise justice.
Turns out the best way to enjoy spicy sriracha mayo is to dip french fries, chicken nuggets and even my pigs in a blanket into the sauce.
A secret tip is to drizzle some of the hot mayo into your hot dog or make it your new sexy fish taco sauce or Vietnamese banh mi sauce
I switched the big mac sauce in a burger with the creamy sriracha sauce.
Another idea is to try crab or shrimp burgers with sriracha mayo sauce.
Or how about you serve this creamy hot sauce with pickled vegetables or with a lovely steak or Schnitzel?
Sriracha Mayonnaise variations
Variations of Sriracha Mayo recipes are totally doable and I suggest you try these out as well.
Use the same ratio as described in my recipe further below, just switch the mayo.
With Japanese Mayonnaise
A less obvious creamy sriracha dipping sauce is the one made of Japanese mayo (aka Kewpie) instead of the regular western mayo.
Japanese Mayo is made of egg yolks and uses rice vinegar.
This hot mayo can be adjusted to either create a Japanese spicy mayo recipe or a rather tangy sweet sriracha mayo dip or sauce.
By the way, the Vietnamese have their own version of mayo too if you are interested to experiment.
With Vegan Sriracha Mayonnaise
Yes, you can make a vegan sriracha mayo!
To do that you just need to switch regular egg mayonnaise with eggless vegan mayonnaise, that’s it!
With Homemade French Mayonnaise
With that, I mean the original mayonnaise recipe, made from scratch.
I shared my mum’s homemade mayonnaise recipe. In that recipe, you can switch the sunflower oil with olive oil and skip the chives garnish all together to prepare an American-Asian Sriracha mayo with a french homemade mayonnaise. (I know, the irony)
