Creamy, Spicy Sriracha Mayo

You can save yourself time, convenience, and money by making your own sauces, dressings, and vinaigrettes at home. It’s our number one kitchen hack for home chefs!

How to make perfect Sriracha Mayo

Prepare the ingredients: Squeeze the fresh lime juice and, if using fresh garlic, grate it just before preparing the sauce. 

Mix the sauce: Mix the mayo, hot sauce, garlic, and lime juice in a bowl. Start with 3 tablespoons of hot sauce. If you want more heat, continue adding to taste. 

Store or serve: Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 10 days. Do not store at room temperature.

Pro Tips

Pro Tip 1: Chili fanatics can add crushed red pepper flakes or chili powder to their Sriracha mayo sauce to make it spicier. 

Pro Tip 2: If you’re trying to get a flavor closer to the “Yum Yum” sauce that you find in Japanese restaurants, you’ll need to add some sugar for sweetness and a bit of ketchup for that subtle tomato flavor.

Pro Tip 3: Plan on using this Sriracha mayonnaise a lot? Get a couple of small sauce dishes or a reusable, squeezable condiment bottle. This recipe keeps for up to 10 days, so you can feel comfortable making a bottle’s worth of sauce.

Key Ingredients and Substitutions for Sriracha Mayo

Sriracha: There isn’t much to say about this ingredient – the classic Huy Fong Hot Chili Sauce can’t be beat!

Mayonnaise: There are so many varieties of mayonnaise these days! Those made with olive or avocado oil tend to be smoother, denser, and creamier than your regular mayonnaise. Choose based on your preferred texture. 

Garlic Powder: You can substitute 1 clove of fresh garlic for powder if preferred. It has a different texture but absolutely adds a stronger garlicky flavor. Grating the garlic will get you more of a paste and help it mix in more thoroughly. 

Lime Juice: Your average sized lime will get you the 2 tablespoons you need. If using lemon juice instead, then one regular sized lemon will also do the trick. Try to use fresh-squeezed rather than concentrate. 

Salt: Don’t use a coarse- or large-grained salt – we don’t want a grainy texture! Table salt will mix in easily.

Frequently asked Questions about Sriracha Mayonnaise

What is Sriracha mayo made of?

Sriracha and mayo! 

To cut through the fat, acidic and zesty lime juice is added to the mix. A bit of salt and garlic powder adds an extra dimension of flavor, and then it’s done! 

Can you freeze Sriracha mayonnaise?

While it will freeze, we don’t recommend it. The mayonnaise will separate once it thaws, pulling away from the acidic lime juice and hot sauce. You could try mixing it back together, but it’ll never return to its original creamy texture.

It only takes 5 minutes to whip up this Sriracha mayo recipe, so make it fresh as needed!

What is Sriracha mayo good on?

It’s good on almost everything. Specifically, we recommend serving it the next time you prepare:

  • Sandwiches or burgers
  • French fries
  • Fish or shrimp tacos or wraps
  • A platter of fresh vegetables
  • Fried rice dishes
  • Grilled chicken

How hot is this Sriracha mayo recipe?

This isn’t a particularly hot chili sauce. It falls between 1,000 and 2,500 Scovilles – less hot than Tabasco and Texas Pete. 

Combined with mayonnaise, it becomes even more mild. It’s great to get a chili flavor without too much heat!
