Creamy and Easy Sriracha Aioli Recipe

What is Sriracha Aioli?

Sriracha aioli sauce is a blend of mayonnaise, sriracha, and lime juice. Aioli is often used synonymously with mayonnaise as it’s defined as a mayonnaise made from olive oil and flavored with garlic. There are different types of aioli recipes out there such as rosemary aioli, chipotle lime aioli, or chimichurri aioli. In fact, the classic mayo ketchup sauce can kind of be considered an aioli sauce too.

  • Mayonnaise – I use store-bought mayo, but homemade works as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

How hot is Sriracha mayo?

The hotness of the taste of sriracha mayo is dependent upon your taste buds. Because this recipe is made with a tablespoon, it’s more on the mild side. Add more or less Sriracha to adjust the spicy level to your liking.

To reduce the heat in the sriracha aioli, simply add less of the sriracha sauce. I recommend starting with a teaspoon and slowly working your way up until you feel it’s right for your taste buds. This recipe calls for one tablespoon, but you can customize it to your liking. 

What does Sriracha aioli taste like?

Sriracha aioli has a bit of variety in taste since it’s loaded with so many different flavors. Between the creaminess of the mayonnaise, the citrus flavor of the lime juice, as well as the pungent taste of the garlic, and, of course, the spiciness from the sriracha, there are so many distinctive flavors involved. Overall, it can best be described as a mix of tangy, spicy, and sweet.
