I am not a huge fan of spice and for so long I thought sriracha sauce was something I could never enjoy… my palate can’t take things that are overly spicy. On top of that, sriracha has been painted to be a condiment that torches your taste buds.

In reality, sriracha sauce amplifies and accentuated flavors so beautifully. The sweet tang with garlic and smoky chili notes are so dang delicious! It really kicks bland foods and flavors up a notch without being too spicy.

If you’re worried about this sriracha aioli being too hot for your taste buds, FEAR NOT! The fat and creaminess from the mayonnaise, along with the lime juice and pinch of salt, really tame the spice.

You can always reduce the amount of sriracha if you need too. But remember, this recipe was developed by a girl who also fears the spice. Wink, wink!

What is Sriracha Aioli?

Sriracha Aioli is a super creamy, zippy, and slightly spicy sauce. It is made with mayonnaise, sriracha sauce, lime juice, freshly grated garlic clove, and a pinch of salt. It is often called sriracha mayo.

I bet you’re wondering, what is Sriracha? Well, Sriracha Sauce is a combination of cayenne peppers, red jalapeno peppers, and garlic. It adds unbelievable flavor and a smooth heat. It pairs well with sweet, citrusy, fresh ingredients. This makes it the perfect partner to a homemade aioli.

Sriracha Aioli Ingredients

  • MAYONNAISE: Use your favorite, just make sure you are not use Miracle Whip. I used a reduced fat olive oil mayo.
  • SRIRACHA SAUCE: I use Sky Valley brand because it has a great balance of flavor and spice without being too spicy (which I love). Feel free to use what you like, just keep in mind some sauces are spicier than others so you may have to alter the amount used.
  • LIME JUICE: Freshly squeezed lime juice tastes the best. Lemon juice can be used in it’s place but it will bring more acidity to your sauce.
  • FRESH GARLIC: Finely minced or grated clove so you do not get a big spicy bite of garlic. I do not recommend substituting garlic powder, the flavor just isn’t there.
  • SALT: This is going to help cut through the acidity (don’t skip this).
Ingredients. Mayonnaise, sriracha sauce, fresh lime juice, grated garlic clove, and salt.
