In this recipe I used coconut aminos to make this Honey Sriracha Sauce soy free and gluten.

If you’ve never had coconut aminos before, think of it as a sweeter version of soy sauce, but not TOO sweet.

It also does NOT taste like coconut, that’s just in its name since its made from coconut palm sap and sea salt. Give it a try for yourself, you’ll be surprisingly impressed!

If you aren’t a huge fan of spice or heart, don’t worry, you can adjust this recipes heat levels accordingly to what you or your family can handle.

In my household we typically tone the heat and spice levels down for my two toddler boys, but for my husband Tom and I? We LOVE the heat!

So, let’s get started!

5 Ingredients for Your Honey Sriracha Sauce

Soy Sauce is typically the main base for this sauce. I used coconut aminos here to make it gluten and soy free. Coconut aminos also gives it a little bit of sweetness which is perfect for this recipe.

Honey is the only sweetener for this recipe. I love using honey for sauces, like this honey garlic sauce. It not only provides a great flavor, but also gives a bit thickness to the texture.

Sriracha turns up the heat! To be honest, when my parents visited from China, they did not find the sriracha sold in the US spicy at all. If you don’t have as much of a tolenrace to spiciness. You can start with 1 – 2 tablespoon of of sirarcha and move your way up. I do love the flavor of sriracha compared to plain chili pepper!

Rice vinegar gives the flavor profile of this 5 ingredient sauce even more complexity. A little tart, a little subtle sweet, not too overpowering.

Minced fresh garlic is another “cherry on top” ingredient. the fresh garlic adds irreplaceable flavor. Growing up in China, my dad uses raw garlic in many sauces, like dumpling sauce, stir fry sauce , or he uses it as a finishing touch to many stir fry dishes like this shirmp and broccoli recipe.

Garlic also releases a whole new flavor profile once cooked. A little spicy, a little nutty, just the right amount to elevetate this honey sriracha sauce to another level.

Simple Steps to Make This Sauce

How to Use This Sweet and Spicy Sauce

There are so many ways you can use this Honey Sriracha Sauce in different savory dishes you make at home.

So many proteins compliment this sauce, such as salmon, chicken, noodles or even vegetables! I love to keep a jar of this sauce in an air tight container in my fridge for whenever I want to spice up a particular dish. If you want to mix and match this sauce with some of my other recipes, I suggest trying it warmed up and spooned over my Crispy Air Fryer Tofu that only takes 20 minutes or add it over my Honey Walnut Shrimp!

Whichever dish you decide to spice up, you will love it. And remember, don’t be afraid to spice up your life! (Spice Girl’s reference anyone? No? Just me?)

Store in a Jar for 10 Days

Store in a air-tight jar like a mason jar in the fridge.

This sauce is fresh without any preservatives so the shelf life is short. But since the base is coconut aminos or soy sauce that are salty, it is able to last a bit longer than some other freshly made dressing like Lemon Tahini Sauce.

This will become the staple of your sauce collection!
