I still remember the first time I saw a bottle of Sriracha Sauce on the table at Cafe Trang, a now-closed Vietnamese restaurant in downtown Salt Lake. My friends called it “Rooster Sauce” and warned me how hot it was, and for some crazy reason I don’t think I ever tried it at Cafe Trang. Then fast forward quite a few years and more and more food bloggers were talking about the Spicy flavor of Sriracha, which had become pretty mainstream by then. I don’t remember exactly when I first decided to try Sriracha Sauce in a recipe, but I know that I loved the way just a small amount of it added a wonderful spicy flavor to anything you used it in.
Through the years I’ve made quite a few tasty recipes that included Sriracha, so I thought it would be a fun twist on our usual weekend round-up to make a round-up of my favorite recipes that include Sriracha. And although it wasn’t easy to limit it to only ten, I’ve chosen My Top Ten Low-Carb Recipes with Sriracha for this week’s round-up! (And then I had to give you just a few more links after the photos for the honorable mentions, all of which are also so tasty!) Sriracha has one carb per teaspoon, but it’s so spicy that when you use it in a recipe you’re only using a tiny amount, so this is an ingredient that has built-in carb control!
What recipes have you tried that include spicy Sriracha sauce? If you’re a Sriracha fan like I am, I’d love to hear in the comments about your favorite way to use it!
If you’re ready to fire up the grill, these Sriracha-Glazed Grilled Chicken Kabobs will be a hit with anyone who likes Sriracha. You can adjust the amount of heat to your preference.
The newest recipe on the blog using Sriracha is this delicious Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal, and I’ve already made this again since I posted the recipe.
I’m kind of a nut for cabbage salads, and I love all the flavors in this Low-Carb Spicy Cilantro Peanut Slaw. You can sub the cilantro for thinly-sliced green onion if you’re not a cilantro fan and this will still be delicious!
It took Kara and I a few tries to come up with this recipe for Sweet and Spicy Baked Sriracha Chicken Thighs, but the end result was a winner. And please don’t be scared by the word sweet; you can use any sweetener you’d like in this recipe.
I made two of my favorite recipes when my friend Jeanne came to lunch, and when she suggested combining them, that’s how this Sriracha Beef Cabbage Bowl was born!
Another variation on the shrimp with Sriracha combination I think is so great is this Easy Shrimp Cocktail with Creamy Sriracha Cocktail Sauce. I make this any time of year, but it’s great for the holidays!
The Maple-Lime-Sriracha Glaze really wakes up the flavor of the salmon in this Grilled Salmon with Maple-Lime-Sriracha Glaze! I use sugar-free maple syrup which tastes great and doesn’t burn on the grill.
Another spicy cabbage salad is this Asian Cabbage Salad with Sriracha and Sesame, and I love this one too!
And finally, I had to include these Oven-Fried Green Tomatoes with Sriracha-Ranch Dipping Sauce even though the Sriracha is just in the sauce. This recipe went crazy a few summers ago and since then it’s been one of the most-visited recipe on the site every time I check!
