    Sounds lush but can the siracha sauce be substituted for something else?

      Sorry for the delay in replying! I am waiting to hear back from the wonderful car owner who provided the recipe!

    Hi Lesley – so i’ve been told that you could either use rice wine vinegar, chilli paste or a different hot sauce to taste! Hope that helps! x
