For The Big Game: Sriracha Sesame Cream Cheese Spread

This recipe is a twist on the tired cream cheese spread that adorns most tables during the super bowl. Simple, spicy and delicious, you can’t go wrong with this one. I recently saw it at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, the Kikkoman folks were there with this recipe and it stood out above the hundreds of cheese selections presented. Sriracha is a hot chili sauce that adds zip to just about anything you want. This recipe is also a good way to use up those toasted sesame seeds in the spice cabinet.

Here’s how to do it:

I used a 3 ounce piece of block style cream cheese, you could use the whole block, just double the marinade portion for a crowd.


I threw in a few black sesame seeds I had in the spice cabinet, the recipe will work just fine with toasted white sesame seeds.

I marinated my cheese block overnight and turned it a few times.



All dressed up and ready for the game!

Sriracha Sesame Cream Cheese

Adapted from KIKKOMAN


3 ounces cream cheese block style

2 Tablespoons Gluten Free Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

In a quart sized plastic bag, place cream cheese in the bag and add the soy sauce and Sriracha sauce. Marinate at least 3 hours, overnight is better. Turn the bag to coat the cheese on all sides. Roll in sesame seeds, place on serving dish and serve with crackers or fresh veggies. Sit back and wait for the complements to roll in..
