Sriracha aioli

Need a quick and punchy sauce for fries or burgers? Look no further than Sriracha Aioli! Sure, you can buy it in at the store. But homemade aioli requires just a few ingredients you might already have on hand and it tastes fantastic. That bottle of Sriracha you already have on hand is perfect for using in a spicy aioli, ideal for covering just about anything with tangy-sweet garlicky heat. Here’s how it’s done!

Aioli vs mayo

What’s aioli, anyway? Aioli is a sauce that comes from the South of France and Spain. The traditional version of aioli is made in a mortar and pestle with garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice or vinegar, and olive oil.

Circa the 1990’s in the US, people have been using the term aioli to refer to any flavored mayonnaise (possibly to sound fancier, who knows!). The difference? Mayo is made with canola oil and no garlic. Many flavored aiolis you’ll find at the store or at restaurants are made using mayonnaise: which is the case with this Sriracha mayo.

Ingredients in Sriracha aioli

This Sriracha aioli recipe uses a base of mayonnaise because it’s the quickest way to make a stellar aioli at home. But if you’re a purist, you can also make it using the traditional aioli method too. Here’s what you’ll need for this spicy aioli:

  • High quality mayonnaise: the quality really does make a difference here! We like a mid-priced mayo like Sir Kensington’s
  • Sriracha
  • Garlic, grated
  • Salt

Ways to use Sriracha aioli

Simply mix the ingredients together and that’s it! It takes just 2 minutes, and you can store it up to 2 week refrigerated. Use it to slather on burgers, as a dip for fries or roasted broccoli, a spread for sandwiches, or a condiment for grilled fish.

About Sriracha

Sriracha is a hot sauce that originated from Thailand: it was created in 1980 by David Tran, a Chinese immigrant from Vietnam. The sauce is made of chile peppers, vinegar, garlic and sugar, and it has a distinctive tangy, garlicky flavor. It rose to fame in the US in the 2010s, and is often used in Thai or Japanese-style dishes or as a condiment for bowl meals, fried rice and more.
