It's National Sriracha Week! Here are 12 Sriracha Recipes Worth Scorching Your Mouth For
National Sriracha Week: It's a thing and we all should celebrate. After almost losing the beloved condiment to a lawsuit a couple of months ago, we can all agree a world without Sriracha just wouldn't taste as good — or feel as good, as has been scientifically proven. But instead of just slathering it indiscriminately all over your dinner, try some of these hot sauce-specific recipes. Now let's get cooking.
Baked Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings
The Comfort of Cooking claims that these have a “five-alarm hot” level of tangy zestiness. Sounds more like a gateway recipe to us.

Bahn Mi Hotdog
Big Girls Small Kitchen classes up the typical hotdog spread with Vietnamese toppings. Keep your sriracha mayo on the milder side if your guests can’t handle the heat.

Sweet Potato Tater Tots with Sriracha Aioli
There’s never a bad time for tater tots. And while your snack might not be as well dressed as Climbing Grier Mountain’s, the evidence will be gone before you really notice.

Spicy Sriracha Steak Lettuce Wraps
Equal parts spicy and sweet (thanks to the honey), this date-night dinner looks harder than it actually is, thanks to Simply Scratch.

Red Miso Ramen with Soft Boiled Egg and Shiitake
Why pay for a pricey bowl of “brunch special” ramen when you can make your own? Restaurants ration out their hot sauce in those tiny ramekins anyway. Thanks to The Gouda Life for giving us the reason we needed to stay home in sweatpants on a Sunday.

Teriyaki Salmon with Sriracha Cream Sauce
Damn Delicious says it best: “Go ahead and take a swim in this sauce. I won’t judge.”

Spicy Chickpea Salad Melts
Take The Gouda Life’s advice and go bit overboard on the sauce.

It might not be a dinner recipe, but the cooking (and baking) opportunities are endless. Toss some of Radical Possibility’s Sriracha Salt into your next batch of chocolate chip cookies for a much-needed kick.

While the boxed store-bought inspiration behind this recipe is delicious in its own capacity, you’ll quickly kick them to the curb after noshing on these baked beauties. (This would be a good time for some of that Sriracha Salt.) Get the how-to from My Name Is Yeh.

Sriracha Caramel Corn
Finally, a snack for those of us dedicated to spritzing Frank’s on our movie-time must-have. Sweet, salty, and spicy — Domestic Fits has answered our prayers.

Crusty Sriracha Cheddar, Pepper Jack Swirl Bread
The only place you may be used to mixing bread and the king of all hot sauces is on your sandwich. That’s unfortunate because we’re willing to bet it’s even better in your bread. Not to mention there’s cheese involved, and that’s always OK. Thanks. Parsley Sage Sweet!
