The Recipe Sriracha Lovers Have Been Waiting For

Alison Gootee


Recipe created by Charles Phan

"Sriracha butter is my version of beurre blanc, the classic French sauce. The heat doesn't cling to your mouth (the fat subdues it), and lime juice gives it a nice acidity. It's become my signature condiment drizzled over fried chicken, but you can also slather it on burgers, put a little in scrambled eggs and dip fries in it." —Charles Phan, owner of the Slanted Door in San Francisco

1 cup butter
1 cup Sriracha
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. sugar

In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. In a blender, combine Sriracha, lime juice, salt and sugar. Blend on high 1 minute, slowly adding the melted butter. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 month.
