Garlic-cilantro fries with sriracha aioli … Easier than you think!

17 Jan

It is no secret that I love Sriracha. It is a fiery sauce made from chilies and garlic and adds a wonder depth of flavor to just about everything. It may just rip your face off, but it is worth it. I love all things spicy or hot, actually. Another favorite is wasabi. I don’t really eat sushi, but I love kappa maki (cucumber sushi) because it is refreshing and is cooling against a giant glob of wasabi.

Moving on.

Aside from my love of all things hot, I also love cilantro. I know it is definitely not for everyone. I know quite a few people who don’t like it one bit. They say it tastes like dirt, like nothing, and so on. I think it is lovely. And I love it.

Other things I love: fries (doesn’t matter what they look like) and garlic.

Fries + garlic salt + cilantro + mayo + sriracha + more cilantro = Magic.

For this late night snack I used frozen fries (make sure they are gluten free), Kraft mayo with olive oil, sriracha, garlic salt (make sure it is gluten free), and a handful of fresh cilantro.

Bake (or fry) the fries according to the directions on the package.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl squirt/scoop a few tablespoons of mayo and about a teaspoon of sriracha. Add a pinch of cilantro and a few shakes of garlic salt if you’d like.

When the fries come out of the oven/oil, shake a little garlic salt on them as well (or whatever garlicky seasoning you like – we also love McCormick’s Perfect Pinch salt-free garlic & herb seasoning). Sprinkle with cilantro.

Enjoy the garlicky fries (yes, feel free to use fresh garlic, too) with the spicy, smooth mayo dipping sauce.

Easy, right? 🙂
