Can I use a different sauce for the spicy prawn stir-fry?

You can try using a different sauce but I can’t guarantee how it will taste.
If you are worried that the sriracha sauce will be too spicy.
Unless you hate spicy food, it’s not.
 
We are using coconut milk to make the sauce which somewhat neutralizes most of the spiciness.
