Bang Bang Sauce

I feel like the old lady on that Franks Red Hot commercial, but really, if it wasn’t mayonnaise based, we would put this stuff on everything.

I am missing one ingredient in the image below,  I add about 2 tablespoons of sugar to my bang bang sauce. I like to sweeten it up a bit but that’s optional (do a taste test).

I made this sauce first for my bang bang cauliflower, which is by far (other than my jello shots) the most popular recipe on my blog. Make this dish once and I promise that you will make it again.

But we also tried it on meatballs, grilled salmon, burgers, shrimp (duh) and chicken and it’s just soooooo good.

I should bottle this stuff.  Bonefish Grill (makers of the original bang bang shrimp) should bottle this stuff.

Bang Bang Sauce
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 table spoon Siracha sauce
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (this type is much less pungent, I wouldn’t substitute regular white vinegar it’s just not the same, don’t worry you will use it again!)
2 tablespoons sugar (optional)

It’s really simple. Just mix together all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl until combined and top any dish or use it as a dipping sauce! If Siracha is too hot for you find some Franks Sweet Chili sauce (sold at most grocery stores) it has a little kick but not as much.

    yummy! You know, since its close to a coleslaw dressing (vinegar, sugar, mayo) maybe “Bang-Bang coleslaw” would be good! 🙂
    Miss you!!

    Okay is it sad I didn’t know red hot had mayo? I am allergic to mayo for some reason. So glad I stopped by to read this. Could have been interesting since I just picked some up.

    This look amazing. I love hot. And sauce. Lol!
