Sriracha Mayonnaise

Sriracha mayonnaise. Yep. It tempers the heat of everyone’s preferred hot sauce by stirring it into creamy mayo. And you can make it as mild or as spunky as you like. Use it as a dipping sauce, a sandwich spread, or, heck, just an overall awesome condiment. The recipe can easily be scaled up or down, depending on how big a stash you feel you need in your fridge.

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.

Comments

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
