Sriracha is a Thai chili hot sauce. Mainly used as a dipping sauce, but can be used to spice up a sandwich by adding some to mayo, or adding some to a spaghetti sauce to add a little kick. Very good in stir-fry sauces. 






 3/4 cup of small red chillies

2 cups of plain pureed tomatoes

5 cloves of garlic, minced

2 shallots, minced

1 tbsp of olive oil

1 tbsp of fish sauce

3 tbsp of rice vinegar

3 tbsp of brown sugar


Step 1: Cut all the tops off of the chillies.  Chop all the chillies into a fine mince.  Be careful not to touch your eyes or anywhere sensitive before washing your hands, thoroughly and a few times.

Step 2: In a medium sauce pot over medium heat, add the oil and let it heat up.  Add the shallots and add a pinch of salt and black pepper.  Saute for 3 or so minutes, then add the minced garlic.  Mix and saute for another few minutes.  Now add the chopped red chillies and mix.

Step 3: Add the tomato sauce to the shallots, garlic and chillies. Mix to combine and lower the heat to low. 

Step 4: Add the fish sauce, rice vinegar, and the brown sugar. Simmer for another 10 minutes. 

Step 5: After the sauce has simmered for a bit, remove from heat and place in a shallow dish to cool.  After it has cooled, transfer to blender or a food processor. Pulse until you reach the consistency you prefer. 

Step 6: Place sauce in individual jars and store in the fridge for 1 week.  You can freeze this sauce as well.
