Sriracha Mayonnaise

Sriracha mayonnaise is gonna shatter your previous notions of what a dipping sauce or sandwich spread or all-around condiment ought to be. Here’s how to make it and our suggested uses.

A glass bowl filled with Sriracha mayonnaise and a typed label underneath.

Sriracha mayonnaise tempers the heat of Sriracha by stirring it into creamy mayo. And you can make it as mild or as fiery as you like. Use it as a dipping sauce, a sandwich spread, or, heck, just an overall awesome condiment. And the amount you make from the recipe can easily be scaled up or down, depending on how big a stash you feel you need in your fridge. (Although we dare say, you can’t really have enough of this stuff on hand.)–Renee Schettler

Recipe Testers' Reviews

Sriracha mayonnaise is a staple at my home. I make it with Hellmann's mayo and store-bought Sriracha. I put this stuff on everything from ham sandwiches, egg and bacon sandwiches, deviled eggs, and, our favorite, finely diced tuna steaks for spicy tuna rolls. There are tons of ways you can use this mayo! Most times, I don't even measure. I just squirt and stir.

I used 5 teaspoons of Sriracha and it was just the right touch of heat. We quickly had a lovely, spicy addition to our burgers on the grill this weekend. Rain and cold weather led to burgers indoors instead of on the deck, but we still kicked up our heels with this new mayonnaise.

  1. I first heard of this from Martha Stewart as a sauce for shrimp cocktail and it’s a nice change from the standard cocktail sauce.

  2. When we have perfect avocados we set up a California Roll temaki bar with sushi rice, nori squares, cucumber strips, surimi, daikon sprouts, and sriracha mayo! Sriracha mayo is also part of our bahn mi sandwich bar.
