Sriracha gets its name from the seaside town of Si Racha, Thailand, where it was created over 70 years ago.
In 1949, Ms. Thanom Chakkapak was the first to combine spicy red chili paste, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and salt to make a sauce to add flavor to grilled fish, chicken, and vegetables.
And sriracha sauce was born.
From its humble beginnings, sriracha sauce has gone on to become famous the world over.
And in 2013, Subway took the spicy sweetness of sriracha and blended it with mayonnaise to make the perfect topping for their subs and sandwiches.
However, they discontinued it in 2019, leaving fans of the sauce hanging.
Fortunately, the wait is over, as this delicious sauce is super easy to make at home.
