Bang Bang Sauce Recipe

This bang bang sauce recipe is sweet, spicy, tangy, and perfect for dipping! It’s a delicious creamy sauce that is ready in about 5 minutes.

This easy no-cook sauce is garlicky, tasty, and so versatile – it goes great with almost any protein! I love serving this with crispy honey garlic chicken bites, bang bang salmon, and is great drizzled over rice bowls.

We absolutely love bang bang sauce, it’s the perfect sauce we love serving with stir fries, rice, protein, and veggies. It’s a great sauce for meats and tofu, and makes a tasty dipping sauce too!

It’s creamy from the mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt, if you’d like to substitute), spicy from the sriracha hot sauce, and sweet from the honey. It’s similar to yum yum sauce you would get at hibachi restaurants, but with a spicy kick! Mix it all together, and enjoy this easy homemade sauce made with simple ingredients. 

I love the creamy texture for dipping salmon bites or crispy chicken tenders in this bangbang sauce. It’s the easiest recipe and tastes absolutely divine!

The best part about this spicy sauce is that it is easy to make, and takes about 5 minutes! It’s a versatile sauce that is great on rice, chicken wings, fish, crispy French fries, and vegetables – and is amazing drizzled over sushi rolls.

Ingredients In Bang Bang Sauce

See the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and instructions.

  • Classic MayonnaiseI like to use this classic mayo for a delicious and creamy sauce. If you don’t normally like mayo, you can use plain Greek yogurt or my dairy-free ‘mayo’ instead!
  • Garlic
  • Lime Juice, fresh
  • Rice vinegar: I love this sweet & tangy rice vinegar, I always keep this vinegar stocked in my pantry for dressings and salads.
  • Honey – a little honey goes a long way! You can also substitute agave nectar or maple syrup too.
  • Smoked Paprika: give an additional depth of flavor to this dish.
  • Sriracha – for a little heat!  It’s great on soups, curries, and noodle salads. If you can’t find sriracha, your favorite hot sauce will do or a bit of cayenne pepper.
  • Tellicherry Black Pepper: It’s amazing the flavor difference you can get with really good black peppercorns in this tasty sauce.
