Sriracha Mayo couldn't be easier to make! Here I will show you the secret ingredient that takes this homemade dip to new heights.
Homemade Sriracha Mayo
I can't remember where I was when I had sriracha mayo for the first time, but it was love at first sight. So smooth and creamy, but pleasant and spicy. Ugh. So good. Realizing yours really couldn't be easier. Here's what you need:
Sriracha Mayo Ingredients
- Garlic powder
- Lime juice
Yes, good compression of lime juice it makes so much difference. It simply enhances that spicy flavor and gives a fresh touch to the dip.
Tip: use a mayonnaise full of fat and fresh lime juice for a fuller flavor. The use of low-fat mayonnaise or bottled lime juice significantly alters the flavor.
When it comes to how spicy this dip is, I actually like it from the creamier side of things. As such, I recommend starting with a ratio of 1 cup of mayonnaise: 2 tablespoons of Sriracha. Many similar recipes actually recommend a lot more sriracha, but I personally think that a little less allows you to appreciate the dip without blowing up your socks. However, adjust accordingly.
I recommend using the Flying Goose Sriracha spicy sauce for the best flavor. I have tried several brands of sriracha and Flying Goose always seems to be at the top. Whatever you do, don't replace "chili sauce" or "spicy sauce" or anything like that.
When it comes to serving sriracha mayo, the usual thing would be to opt for a bowl or small pot.
