With a spicy kick, this Sriracha Mayo Sauce Recipe goes together in no time. The perfect condiment to always have on hand.

I have loved this creamy sauce since I tried it forever ago, but I just got around to trying my hand at making it myself. I have to say; this is the best Sriracha Mayo Recipe I have ever had!

I might be a tad biased, but it is true! I think what really makes it unique is my secret ingredient: prepared horseradish!

It gives an extra kick and zing to the sauce, making your guests ask, what IS that?! It also has a touch of sweetness that is irresistible.

So easy to throw together; the toughest part about this spicy sriracha mayo is waiting around for it to chill in the fridge. It needs at least 1 hour of chill time to properly develop the flavors.

This popular condiment can go on all the things. You can also make it fit your preferred spice level.

I say, if you are not that big of a fan of spicy foods, then start out with half of the amount of sriracha called for in the recipe. Taste, and add more as needed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

WHAT TO SERVE THIS WITH?

I’ve been using it as a general, all-purpose sauce on my favourite foods, it is that good. Some options for topping or dipping include:

  • On sandwiches in place of regular mayonnaise (I LOVE it on our crab cake sandwich, recipe coming soon!)
  • Poke Bowls
  • Sushi Rolls
  • French Fries
  • Onion Rings
  • Hot Dogs
  • Crab Cakes
  • Fish Tacos

It is also great in other recipes. I like to add some to my potato salad!

DO I HAVE TO USE SRIRACHA?

The best thing about creating recipes is you get to make them your own.

If you don’t have sriracha but still want to make a similar spicy sauce, you can add substitutes.

Try adding these instead:

  • Tabasco Sauce
  • Sambal Oelek
  • Any type of hot sauce that is your favorite

HOW IS SRIRACHA DIFFERENT THAN OTHER HOT SAUCES?

Sriracha is generally more flavorful than traditional hot sauces, in my opinion.

It has added ingredients like garlic, vinegar, and sugar to make it unique.

DO I HAVE TO USE HORSERADISH?

Nope, you do not have to use horseradish. I like the unique spicy quality you get from it and it goes in many other popular sauces like bloomin’ onion sauce.

But, if you don’t have it on hand or you can’t find it, you can leave it out—no need to replace it with anything.

I used the prepared horseradish that is in the refrigerated section, either by the sour cream or sometimes by the fresh fish counter. Do not get the creamy kind; this is a totally different sauce that should usually go with roast beef.

ARE THERE ANY SUBSTITUTIONS?

Yes, there are substitutions or other items you might try adding to switch it up.

You can use Greek yogurt, sour cream, kewpie mayonnaise (Japanese mayo), or vegan mayo instead of store-bought mayonnaise.

Use lime juice in place of lemon juice, and make sure it is freshly squeezed.

Garlic powder can be used in place of fresh (use 1/4 teaspoon in place of 1 clove of fresh garlic). Try adding in some onion powder too for more flavor.

Chop up some chili peppers or green onions and stir them into this sriracha mayonnaise at the end – so good, and a great way to add some more spice if desired.

HOW TO STORE:

Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Before serving after sitting, stir it well, as it may separate a little when sitting.

I do not suggest freezing.

DANA’S TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Tons of custom options, see my tips above on that.
  • Make sure you let it sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving so the flavors can bloom.
  • I do not suggest freezing.
