A creamy compound butter that perfectly blends the sweetness of honey with the heat of Sriracha chili sauce- this Sriracha honey butter is the perfect compliment to grilled meats, seafood, or even just simply enjoyed on toast.
I love that moment in the grocery store, when I’ve asked the hubs to come with me, and then somehow that translates into the need (and perceived want) for him to comment on everything I’m putting in the cart.
Yes, I want that. No, you don’t have to eat it if you don’t like it. If you’d like the organic version, get your own cart and fork over the cash.
Because Honey, I just wanted to spend some time with you, and with all our kids the grocery store on an average Friday night is about as fancy as it gets.
I should have taken a picture (the look of disdain would’ve kept longer) the first time he saw me put sriracha sauce in the basket. I’m telling you, if pictures could talk that one would have been worth a million bucks!!
Oh, the commentary. Nobody would like it, what a waste of money, but I could get this but there wasn’t wiggle room for the extra candies, a tub of ice cream, or snack cakes.
Sometimes having a husband is a bit like having an extra child, a freakishly big man child with a very colorful vocabulary who never outgrew his sweet tooth. In his book, sugar should trump sauce every time.
Luckily for me, I’m the master of the potholders and the cooker of all things, so we go by the rules in my cookbook.
Just an fyi, a few years later and the husband puts this same Sriracha sauce on everything. Eggs, noodles, steak- I’ve even seen him put it on salad.
He loves it soo much, I even got him a little mini sriracha 2 go bottle on a key chain to take to work for his breakfast and lunch– because now he can’t live without it.
I’ve even perfected the art of not actually saying I told you so. Seriously. A well-timed, extra raised eyebrow can speak volumes.
This smooth and creamy compound butter this Sriracha honey butter is perfect for the Sriracha lover in your life and the unfamiliar alike. If, like me, you have an affinity for the perfect blend of heat and sweet, this has your name written all over it.
Spread it on your favorite meats, like a juicy steak or grilled chicken or even wings. Let a generous dollop melt over some seafood, like fresh lobster or some flaky salmon.
Just slather it on some toast and dig into breakfast– like actually dig in. Scoop up a nice bit of scrambled egg onto said toast and shovel It on in.
Sririacha Honey Butter
- 2 sticks butter softened
- 2 tbsp honey
- 5-7 tsp Sriracha chili sauce less or more to taste
- 5-6 cloves garlic minced
- scant 1/8-1/4 tsp salt or to taste
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the softened butter, honey, sriracha, and salt until it's whipped and the ingredients evenly incorporated.
- Tear off a large sheet of syran wrap and spread it out on a clean work surface or countertop. Transfer the butter onto it, and gently overlay the syran wrap and roll it up to shape the butter into a cylinder. Twist both ends like you would a candy, and tuck any excess over/under when you put it in the refrigerator.
- After an hour, or when the butter has solidified it's ready to be sliced/used.
