Boom Boom Sauce that Makes a Bang!

Boom Boom Sauce is a delicious sweet and savory (with a bit of heat) condiment. A base of mayonnaise creates a creamy and satisfying sauce. Dip your french fries in it, drizzle it on hot dogs, hamburgers, or onion rings, or make the famous Boom Boom Shrimp dish and impress your friends. However you use it, it will quickly become your favorite dipping sauce.

We’re sort of big on condiments in our house, but this one has quickly become our go-to for nearly any meal. I discovered this sauce initially at Sheetz Gas Stations while driving through Pennsylvania. Then I started buying it at the grocery store. But I swear, making it at home always tastes better!

Is Yum Yum Sauce the same as Boom Boom Sauce?

Yum Yum Sauce is very close to Boom Boom Sauce with a few key differences. The first is that Boom Boom Sauce is a tad spicy while Yum Yum Sauce is more mild. Yum Yum Sauce is also a tad sweet because of dash of sugar added to it.

Vegan Boom Boom Sauce

Absolutely! You can definitely make Boom Boom Sauce vegan. Just swap out the regular mayonnaise for vegan mayonnaise. My favorite vegan mayo brand is by far Sir Kensington’s Vegan Mayo with Avocado Oil. Most of the time you can find this mayo in a large grocery chain. If you can, click on the link and get in on Amazon.

How to Use Boom Boom Sauce

The possibilities are really endless. Below are a few of my favorites.

Use this dipping sauce for these Crispy Green Bean Fries or traditional potato fries.

As much as I love ranch dressing (I have a great copycat outback ranch recipe! See end of post.) you can use this sauce for dipping your Crispy Nuwave Air Fryer Chicken Wings, or drizzle it on these Chipotle Lime Shredded Beef Tacos.

Pretty much any appetizer you can think of it’s a dipping sauce for. From Coconut Shrimp to even Air Fried Ravioli! And finally, substitute Boom Boom Sauce for anything you’d typically put hot sauce on.

I will say though that my favorite way to use this dipping sauce is substituting it for salad dressing. I like to thin it down with a bit of rice wine vinegar and whisk it well.

Last but not least (even if it’s the healthiest) use this Boom Boom Sauce as a side dipping sauce to spruce up an otherwise boring veggies plate.

And like I mentioned above, you’ll fall hard for Boom Boom Shrimp. Just look at that image above! (Don’t worry, recipes coming soon 😉
