Sriracha adds depth and an intriguing twist to recipes such as Spicy Ceviche, Vietnamese-Style BBQ Short Ribs, and Sriracha Sangria.

Read from the Book

IntroductionStep foot into an Asian market or restaurant, and you’re almost sure to be greeted by a glowing red bottle of Sriracha Chili Sauce. Over the past few years, however, its fame has carried it beyond the Asian sector, landing it on countless diner counters, restaurant menus, and into the hands of some very upscale chefs. References in several notable cookbooks, as well as appearances in several episodes of Top Chef and on the shelves of Wal-Mart, all stand as testaments to its welcomed ubiquity and tasty reputation.Its vibrant color and unique, piquant flavor have made it a hit, slowly growing in popularity over the past 28 years simply by word of mouth. A mainstay in many home kitchens and innumerable college dorm rooms, Sriracha strikes a delicate balance of flavors and sensory experiences that isn’t just appealing, it is downright addictive. And with a price tag near $3 a bottle, there are certainly far worse habits to adopt.Blending the sweetness and squeeze bottle simplicity of ketchup with a welcome garlic pungency and just the right amount of spice, Sriracha is quickly becoming a staple among American condiments. Although a squirt or two over a bowl of fried rice or ramen is most common, I’ve set out to find new ways of utilizing Sriracha, not just as a topping but as an additional ingredient and tool in our culinary arsenal. Working with PeppersJust as hot peppers can have a burning effect on your tongue, so too can they wreak havoc on your skin and eyes. Whe

Editorial Reviews

“The Sriracha Cookbook is a wonderful little book that embraces flavor, celebrates creativity and, most of all, trumpets the wonders and versatility of a single condiment that just might change the way you think about eating.”—The Sacramento Bee, 8/31/11"It’s truly a condiment worthy of a cookbook, and Randy Clemmons brings the heat."—flavorwire.com“Named after a Thai fishing town, and created in its current form by a Vietnamese immigrant in Los Angeles, Sriracha - AKA "rooster sauce" - is experiencing a meteoric rise in mainstream popularity. But the bright-red chili sauce in the clear plastic bottle is no niche ingredient, like truffle paste or salt cod. Its five basic elements (peppers, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and salt) cover every part of the flavor spectrum, making it a surprisingly versatile additive: while The Sriracha Cookbook, as one would expect, contains many Asian recipes, it also branches out internationally with recipes like Sriracha Pesto, Sriracha Ceviche, and Bacon-Sriracha Cornbread. Most importantly, while author Randy Clemens clearly enjoys his titular ingredient (and is a confessed spice junkie), he has a strong culinary background, and his well-tested recipes succeed in making the book much more than a novelty.”—John Peck, Diesel, A Bookstore (Oakland, CA), February 2011“At this time of year, we have to look for heat wherever we can get it – especially on our food. Luckily, we have Sriracha – that garlicy, ketchupy bottle of hot sauce that’s
