40 fabulous recipes with Sriracha sauce

40 fabulous recipes, from apps to dessert.

When you peek inside my refrigerator, you'll always find, lined up in the door, Fresca and fizzy water, ketchup, mustards, mayonnaise, soy sauce, chili paste with garlic (spicy), Thai curry pastes (spicy), and a very large squeeze bottle of Sriracha (spicy). Do you detect a theme? Yes, I love spicy food, but sometimes adding just a drop or two of hot sauce can bring a so-so dish to life without also numbing your tongue. Like salt, a little bit of heat enhances the flavors around it. A lot of heat is just, well, hot. How much Sriracha you add is always up to you. Though it sounds hard-to-find, you can buy Sriracha in any grocery store's Asian foods aisle. Here are some of my favorite recipes with Sriracha, made by some favorite food bloggers. And, at the end, there are brownies.

You've reminded me of some favorites, particularly your Nasi Goreng. That's so indulgent tasting.
Now, dessert? That's a shock! I haven't run into any before. Try some? Maybe...

What a nice list! There are many great recipes. I'll try some new this week. Thank you for sharing.

It's so funny how Sriracha is everywhere now - from restaurants to college cafeterias. I love it and lately have been buying a brand from the Asian grocery store that I love that's free of preservatives. The flavor is a little different from the one most people associate with Sriracha, but I like it even better.
