Fried egg sandwich with sriracha
Eggs and hot sauce have always been a match made in heaven, but Tokyo Terrace raises the breakfast bar with this fried egg sandwich. It’s your typical egg and cheese breakfast sandwich — only it isn’t. It’s also got spinach — because how often do you get some leafy greens in the morning? — and is drizzled with delicious sriracha chili sauce. We’ll never go back to our old breakfast sandwich again.
Sriracha Bloody Mary
Like breakfast sandwiches, traditional Bloody Marys have been rendered a thing of the past now that we’ve learned to use sriracha instead of Tabasco. Make sure you have some ice-cold water at hand if you choose to pair this Bloody Mary with the sriracha fried egg sandwich.
“Sugar and spice and everything nice” pretty much sums up these sriracha lollipops from Sprinkle Bakes. The recipe creator says, “It’s just hot enough to make your tongue tingle and has the recognizable flavor of the beloved rooster sauce.”
Lemongrass and sriracha grilled shrimp
Forget burgers and hot dogs. Your next barbecue should have these lemongrass and sriracha grilled shrimp from Rasa Malaysia. The prawns are marinated in a mixture of fish sauce, lemongrass, sugar, sriracha and garlic, then grilled and dipped in chili-calamansi dipping sauce.

Sriracha lime chicken skillet
One of our go-to easy chicken recipes, this sriracha lime chicken from Gaia Health Blog packs a lot of flavor in each chicken thigh. One tablespoon of sriracha was perfect for us, but those who prefer serious heat will need to add more.

Sriracha scallion butter for grilled corn
Whoever wrote “The Sriracha Cookbook” deserves a Pulitzer Prize. Adapted from the cookbook, this sriracha butter from Domestic Fits is heaven in your mouth. (Please refrain from eating it by itself — it deserves fresh grilled corn.)

Why we love aioli: You can put it on anything. And since this is sriracha aioli, we now have another way to put sriracha on anything — and everything. Unlike typical high-fat aiolis made from lots of mayo, this one from The Skinny Fork uses just a little bit of light mayo combined with plain fat-free Greek yogurt. Now go create the best sandwich you’ve ever made!
Zesty honey sriracha grilled chicken wings
You already like your chicken wings hot — why use anything but sriracha to bring the heat? These zesty honey sriracha chicken wings from ZagLeft benefit from two beautifully complementary flavors: the sweet taste of honey and oranges combined with the spicy heat of the sriracha. Grab a summer ale and you’re good to go.
This will transform your grilling. Add this sriracha salt — all you need is, yep, sriracha and kosher or sea salt — to veggies or fish before throwing them on the grill. It also makes for a unique and inexpensive gift.

Bet you never thought wine and sriracha in the same glass would be a good idea. But it turns out it’s a VERY good idea.
