Spicy Sriracha Mayo
This homemade Spicy Sriracha Mayo will give you the tastiest spicy mayo sauce you’ve ever tried! It’s a creamy, spicy, and garlicky sauce that’s not only super easy to make but also incredibly delicious. It goes great on snacks, sandwiches, salads, veggies, sushi, and more!
Servings: 1 cup
In a small bowl, mix 1 cup Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce, and ¾ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper together until everything is well combined.
(Optional, but highly recommended) If you are adding garlic, grate it finely and put it in the bowl with the sauce and mix everything together. Start off by grating half a clove of garlic and mix it into the sauce. Do a taste test to make sure it is a good level of garlickiness. If you want it more garlicky, add the full clove.
Enjoy with snacks, sushi, veggies or sandwiches!
- Japanese Kewpie Mayo - I like to use Japanese Kewpie Mayo for Sriracha mayo, which you can usually find at an Asian grocery store but I have found it at Walmart and specialty grocery stores as well. It has a bit more flavor than the standard mayonnaise because of the MSG in it but if you can't find Kewpie mayo, you can definitely substitute it with standard mayonnaise (Hellman's) but I wouldn't use Miracle Whip for this recipe. I personally find Miracle whip is too sweet for this recipe and has less of a creamy buttery flavor.
- Ground Cayenne Pepper- Adding ground cayenne pepper the sauce gives the sriracha mayo a bit of a spicier kick and a stronger pepper flavor which gives the sauce a bit more flavor. A little goes a long way, so if you don't like spicy things, just put a small pinch and work your way up with taste testing until it is the right amount of spice level for you.
