Wondering how to make Sriracha mayo after enjoying it at your local restaurant and thought it was the bomb dot com? Well it is easier than you think and it’s insanely good on ALL THE THINGS y’all. Just one of our favorite chicken wings dipping sauces. (affiliate links present)
Crab Cake Dipping Sauce
You’ve got to try this on our air fryer crab cakes and French fries too. You can make it up real quick right when your meal is ready or make a larger batch and store it for later. Yes this 3 ingredient dip is really easy to make but take note of a few helpful tips so it is as good as you remember it like:
Use full fat Best Foods instead of Miracle Whip. If you have ever tasted the latter it has more of a vinegar taste to it. Though since this a savory blend that wouldn’t be horrible, it just isn’t ideal. And low fat is a no no.
I mean, we aren’t saying this is a healthy food option my friends, all in moderation right? It is great on all the things, let your imagination run wild and try it with appetizers and on different proteins.
As far as the “secret” 3rd item, it’s garlic powder. You could use granulated garlic if you preferred, that wouldn’t make much of a difference. I would say this is somewhat similar to how to make fry sauce. That one doesn’t have any heat to it though, but reminds me of it.
Want to amp the spicy nature of this up even more? Use a bit of red pepper flakes if you like. Not only will that give more heat, but a bit of texture with the flakes, and a speckled color to it too.
What is Sriracha mayo good on?
Oh all the things y’all. I mentioned fries and crab cakes above but the list goes on and on. You can offer it up as a dip with frozen chicken tenders once those are crispy and warm. Once your frozen chicken wings in air fryer are done you can toss it together so every piece gets nice and coated.
Fish tacos are the bomb with this Sriracha mayo recipe. With a squeeze of lime juice on top too OH MY heavens y’all.
What is Sriracha Mayo made of?
- This mayonnaise, duh – do NOT buy low fat
- remember I said Best Foods is my favorite, it is called Hellmann’s in some parts of the country, same brand and gluten free too
- One or a few Tablespoons of Sriracha sauce for the heat, give or take how much you use depending on how risky you are
- some prefer chili sauce or Tabasco sauce, I don’t think it tastes the same with these, it needs the above spicy sauce to make it just right
- Garlic powder
Beyond that just use a small bowl and fork to whisk it all together. Start with 1 Tbsp of hot sauce and then once blended, taste it. If you want it a bit bolder then add 1/2 Tbsp more, whisk, taste and keep going until it is perfect for your family. You can use it as a dip or a way to heat up your otherwise mild air fryer tuna melt!
Is Sriracha Mayo the same as Kewpie Mayo?
No. You may have seen Kewpie at the store, cute bottle but different product. Homemade Sriracha mayo is made with eggs where the other uses just the yolks. That means it’s much thicker with a more eggy base flavor.
How long does spicy mayo last in fridge?
If you make a big batch and store it in a sealed container like a mason jar it will last about 3 months in the fridge. That way you can have it handy for future uses.
