Spicing up your dish with some Siracha chili sauce

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

It might be the world's new favorite condiment Siracha chili sauce.

We are celebrating the famous bright red rooster sauce for National Siracha Week with Kate Hays from Dish Catering.

Sriracha-style hot sauce

Makes about 1½ cups sauce

Note: This sauce should be prepared in a well-ventilated area and is best prepared at least 1 to 2 days before using. Cane vinegar and palm sugar can be found at select well-stocked cooking stores, as well as Asian markets.
  • 1 pound  fresh red chiles, stemmed and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, more if desired
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, more if desired
1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the chiles, garlic, vinegar, salt and sugar to form a coarse paste.

2. Remove the mixture to a non-reactive saucepan and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the aroma softens or mellows a bit, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. Blend the sauce again to form a smooth paste, thinning as desired with water.

4. Taste the sauce, and tweak the flavors as desired with additional salt, sugar or vinegar.

  • 1 1/2 tsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
