It’s a mayonnaise based garlic chili sauce.  The flavor is incredible – there’s a touch of heat, a little bit of sweetness and a great garlic taste.  It’s the perfect combination of flavors, in my opinion.

This sauce is incredibly versatile. It goes on just about anything.  Heck, I’d probably eat my shoe if it had this sauce on it.

I love it on burgers, fries and sandwiches.  But, I especially love it on these Shrimp Tacos.

Expert Tips for Making Boom Boom Sauce

  • Use a plunger measuring cup for the mayonnaise.  I love this using plunger measuring cup for ingredients like mayo, ketchup or peanut butter.  It’s so easy.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled.  We go through a lot of this Boom Boom Sauce at my house.  I usually make a double or triple batch so that I always have it on hand.
  • Store extra sauce in a jar with a tight fitting lid.  I love using these jars.
  • For best results, make this Boom Boom Sauce several hours ahead of time.  It gives all of the flavors a chance to become with each other and amp up the deliciousness factor. The longer it sits, the better it is.

    Delicious! We loved it on veggie sushi so tonight we had it on trader joes sweet chili Thai veggie burgers. Its also awesome for dipping sweet potato fries! I am sure I will find more great ways to use it. Bonus that I always have these simple ingredients on hand.

    Excellent. I use a full teaspoon of the siracha sauce as it is easier than trying to measure 3/4 tsp,

  3. Was wondering if the sauce would be similar flavor to Hot Head Sauce. This is the served at a chain restaurant in our area called Hot Head Burritos. It is similar to Chipotle but with more options. I was looking for a copycat recipe for that and found this one so thought I would ask….

    • I know that Sheetz uses it on their products. Otherwise you can easily make it following the recipe I provided 🙂

    • I found it at Walmart and Food Lion. Since this recipe is so easy and the sauce so good, might as well make your own, though

    This boom boom sauce was the perfect condiment for shrimp I brought to a holiday party. A little squeeze of lemon juice on top of the shrimp and then a dip into this fabulous sauce was heavenly!

    Ooohhh this was a huge hit! I have always mixed mayo and ketchup together for my chicken and fries, but adding just a few simple spices really takes it to another (even fancier) level.
