in my cupboard: sriracha

Sometime within the last month or so I’ve converted into the person who puts hot sauce on everything! I’m not sure why the sudden change but I’m loving the spice!

I first tried the Sriracha on pizza during a trip to LA and I have used the Sambal Oelek sauce for a while now in stir-fry’s, veggies, etc. (a Ground Fresh Chili Paste) but now I can’t live without the Chili sauce. Just. Can’t. Do. It.
There are impostors out there, but there really is no competition. Just look for the Green cap and Rooster. The name Sriracha is a region of Thailand and while this version doesn’t have the spice factor of the sauces you would find in Thailand it is still made in the traditional way and using the traditional ingredients, in California of course. :)
What do I put it on?
Eggs, pizza, salads, sauces, veggie burgers, chicken/fish…..ok, anything that needs a little spice!
What do you put hot sauce on?

      Hi Diana,
      I don’t! I would imagine either very few, or none as it is more of a condiment and mostly peppers!
      I am going to try to get my hands on a points calculator!

        Thanks Emily, but it’s OK. I just started looking into WW yesterday and will have to dive in and get one anyway.

        I have been a huge Sriracha fan for about 4 years. It’s beautiful to dot appetizers with if you’re having a party, too. Just warn the guests! I like taking a nibble size low-fat cracker spreading a hint of orange marmalade on it, adding the smallest sliver of steak, the smallest sprinkle of bleu cheese or gorgonzola, a few finely sliced scallion bits, and then a few dots of Sriracha. Yum! Heaven in a bite. I like your blog and thanks for answering!
