Spice Things Up By Going From Sweet To Hot
It is my personal opinion that Sriracha makes everything tastes better, but I’m a huge hot sauce fan. As a matter of fact, Scriracha has sort of taken over the hot sauce industry and is dominating the shelves in our grocery stores. There is now Sriracha ketchup and Sriracha mayonnaise and even sriracha burgers at various restaurants.
So, you can always spice things up by adding a splash of Sriracha and substituting it for the sweet soy glaze for your final seasonal dash.
