Sriracha Lime Sauce

Rooster sauce with a citrusy tang…

Sriracha sauce is the perfect base for all sorts of sauces. Its mix of red jalapeños peppers, tomato, and garlic works with anything from pasta sauces to barbecue wet rubs. This Sriracha lime sauce sits somewhere in-between the two. It’s an excellent serving sauce for chicken or steak, with both heat and citrusy tang. Or try it as a dipping sauce fo satay as a an alternative to a typical spicy peanut sauce.

If you want more heat in this sauce, look to the spice rack. A pinch of cayenne pepper is your best bet as you want to keep the balance of Sriracha to lime juice even.

Want it spicier? Add a pinch of cayenne pepper (or to taste) instead of increasing the amount of Sriracha. This keeps the balance of lime to tomato/garlic at a proper level for the sauce.
