Sriracha Sauce Recipe

Sriracha sauce is a spicy sauce from Asian cuisine and used to spice many meals including chicken wings, vegetable side dishes, rice and noodles.  It can also be added to your eggs and to your drinks if you like a bloody or virgin mary.
It has been found that spicy foods help the release of serotonin and dopamine which contribute to an improved feeling of wellbeing.  Not only does consuming sriracha sauce in your diet make you feel good, it can help dissolve blood clots, lower cholesterol and blood pressure.  It also fights inflammation, the common cold and reduces the risk of cancer.
