Expert Tips for Making This Boom-Boom Sauce Recipe

  • Not as Hot: One teaspoon of toasted sesame oil can replace the sriracha sauce. Use caution, the taste is strong.It is a personal preference.
  • Add Lemon Juice: Want a little acidy tang, try a little splash of lemon or lime juice.
  • 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.
  • Variation tip: Like a little more heat, add some spice such as cayenne or red pepper flake, or green chilies, use your best judgement. Yellow Mustard is good too.

    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.
