Description

My permanent roommate and I love to eat sushi, and one night he decided to deconstruct the spicy mayo that they use on some rolls. This is pretty darned close to what’s used with sushi and at certain Japanese steakhouses.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Hellmann's
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter Or Margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha Or Similar Garlic Hot Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoons Onion Powder, Or More To Taste
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder, Or More To Taste
  • 1 teaspoon Tomato Paste (optional)

Preparation

Put mayo in a bowl. Melt the butter in a second small bowl in the microwave. When melted completely, add remaining ingredients. Slowly add the butter mixture to the mayo, stirring to incorporate.

Options: You can use cayenne pepper or regular hot sauce if you don’t have sriracha. If you do, add a little extra garlic (you can add more onion powder, too, but make sure there’s more garlic than onion). Adjust other ingredients to taste. If you like it creamier, add more butter; if you prefer things more savory, add more spices. You can leave out the tomato paste. If you do, add more paprika to give it a deeper orange color. Sauce will have a stronger flavor the older it gets, so be careful. This recipe is incredibly flexible, but the more you change it the less authentic the end result will be.

Ours definitely has more ingredients but we based it on the stuff at our sushi place…since they make their own (and won’t share ingredients), I think we did a pretty good job of it. :) Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think!

I had a roommate from Japan and he made this with mayo, Sriracha & a few drops of toasted sesame oil. Your version looks delish too. I’ll have to try it!
