Sriracha Aioli

What is Sriracha?

Primarily made from chilli paste, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt, Sriracha is a slightly thick concoction that is similar to ketchup. Thought to have originated from the town Si Racha, 120km southeast of Bangkok, Thailand but made famous by the version created by Huy Fong Foods based in California.

It now produces over 3,000 bottles every hour, 24 hours a day, six days a week – that’s 20 million bottles a year. Possibly one of the most popular condiments around the globe.

The tangy, spicy sauce is fantastic on almost everything – classic dipping sauce for Vietnamese pho and essential on Thai fried noodles. We’ve seen it on top of pork baos, added in stews and in cocktails. There are so many new Sriracha recipes these days; it’s only your imagination that would limit you.

What Is The Difference Between Aioli and Mayonnaise?

We do sometimes get confused between aioli and mayonnaise. They look pretty much the same.

Traditionally, aioli is an emulsion of a whole lot of crushed garlic and olive oil. However, over the years, aioli has evolved into more of a creamier version. Today, when we refer to aioli, we would generally mean a mayonnaise-based dressing flavoured with a generous amount of garlic.

You can, of course, make your own mayonnaise as the base for this Sriracha Aioli but this recipe uses store-bought mayonnaise as a base. Super easy and tastes delicious.

Our Sriracha aioli is also delicious for other dishes as a dipping sauce such as fish and chips, grilled calamari or add to flaked tuna for a flavourful sushi filling.

Sriracha Aioli Ingredients

Sriracha: This spicy sauce synonymous with so many dishes is a must have at home! If you’re not familiar with Sriracha, here it is.

Mayonnaise: We love whole egg and super creamy mayonnaise. You can’t go wrong with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. If you need a vegan version, Hellmann’s does a vegan mayo too.

Garlic: No Asian style salad dressing would be complete without some pungent garlic.

Lemon: This dressing needs some citrusy goodness to balance out all the flavours.

Sriracha Aioli Method

Peel and finely mince 2 cloves of garlic.

In a small bowl, add crushed garlic, mayonnaise, Sriracha and lemon juice.

Whisk together until well combined.
