I saw on Peter Reinharts PizzaQuest about the Sriracha Salt by Brad English.  This is the recipe for Sriracha salt and the story behind it.  http://www.fornobravo.com/pizzaquest/instructionals/59-written-recipes/402-sriracha-seasoned-salt.html

I decided to try and make the Sriracha Salt since it sounded so easy and since it said it would add a spicy taste, but in a more flavorful way.  I made the Sriracha Salt last evening.

I cut zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, crushed garlic, added some olive oil, fresh basil, fresh oregano, fresh parsley, fresh sweet onions and sprinkled some Sriracha salt over the top and stirred it in.  I decided to bake the slow way like Les’s sweet sauce is made. 

I think the Sriracha Salt gave the zucchini and yellow squash a great taste with the other herbs and the slow bake.

Maybe I will try the Spicy oil next on PizzaQuest.

Lydia,

Let us know what you used the Sriracha salt on and if you like it.  I know you are really good in mixing things and getting good results.  :)

Norma, Sadly it is becoming difficult to find Huy Fong Foods, Made in the USA "rooster sauce" here in Mexico. Huy Fong Foods now produces it's sauce in Mexico and it's not as good as the "American" version IMO. It's just not the same. Of course their very popular sauce is not the same as the Thai versions I've tried. And yes, it is a USA product created by a Chinese Vietnamese farmer while in Asia but produced in the USA when he came to the US. So  it goes, we have better Coca Cola but you have better Sriracha "Rooster" sauce. Go figure.

Don,

I didn’t even think about Mexico not selling the Sriracha “rooster sauce”, or Huy Fong Foods, Inc. now producing it’s own sauce in Mexico and not being as good as the American version.  I also didn’t know that the USA product was created by a Chinese Vietnamese farmer while in Asia, but produced in the USA when he came back to the US.  You know a lot more about Huy Fong Foods, Inc. than I know.   :)

What did you use the “rooster sauce” (or comparable product) on before?  I never used the “rooster sauce” on anything before the salt.  I was thinking about using it on a pizza, but wasn't sure how to use it.

Don,

I forgot about you using a Sriracha style sauce on the Asian challenge thread.  You sure made some beautiful looking pizzas on that thread.  ;D

Thanks!  :)

I tried the Sriracha Salt on regular hamburg bbq this evening and thought it was good.  I usually use apple cider vinegar, sugar, catsup and Worcestershire sauce for my hamburg bbq, but was out of the Worcestershire sauce, so I replaced it with a little more of the Sriracha sauce and added a little A-1 steak sauce.  It turned out better than I thought it would.  The Sriracha sauce gave the hamburg bbq a nice bite.

I had it on ribs the other night. It was great. Bill suggested I try it on the sourdough onion rings from his book which I hope to try this weekend.

Craig,

Did you just use the Sriracha Salt on the ribs, or did you use the Sriracha sauce too for the ribs?  Either way i would guess it would taste good.  I can imagine it would taste great on Bill's sourdough onions rings too.   ;D

I don't know why I didn't ever try Sriracha sauce before.

I rubbed it on the ribs and then baked them with Coke before smoking: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,20326.msg200761.html#msg200761

I love Siracha. I mix it with soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and chili oil and use it as a dipping sauce, put in it soup, etc.

It's good mixed with a little peanut butter and spread on chicken or pork chops.

Craig,

Thanks for telling me all the ways you used Sriracha.  :)  I guess I must have been way behind before.  I will have to start experimenting more.

It's closer to chili garlic sauce. If you don't like that you might not like sriracha salt, but it doesn't cost much to find out.

I probably wouldnt then. Everything ive tried it in was in asian/indian type food dishes so maybe in some more american type foods i might like it, i dunno. I do like making swedish meatballs in a grape jelly and heintz chili sauce gravy. So who knows.

Larry,

I never even tried Sriracha on a plain cheese pizza.  I guess I might try it this week.  I am behind on using the Sriracha sauce, but do really like what I have tried in on.

FeCheF,

You will never know, unless you try it.  I never gave it a second glance before either.  I like things a little spicy, but not really hot.
