Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Egg *see Notes
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar *see Notes
  • 2 Teaspoon Rice Vinegar *see Notes
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Cup Sunflower Oil or other vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Get a measuring cup to make the mayo and keep a hand blender ready.

  • Add whole egg, sugar, salt, vinegar and oil to the measuring cup.

  • Immerse the hand blender into the cup and turn it on but don't make any sudden moves. Just keep it in one place, do not move up blender stick or else the mayo won't turn out great. Literally keep it in one place!

  • Keep it immersed and you will notice that the mayonnaise will turn whiter and silkier over time. Blend until you are satisfied with the consistency and color. This can take about 3 minutes.

  • You can choose to flavor your japanese mayonnaise at the end with mustard or sriracha. Mix in well.

  • Store your mayonnaise in an airtight container until further use or use right away. See serving recommendations in post.

Notes

  1. Use only warm room temperature egg, never a cold egg. A cold egg turns the mayonnaise more liquid. This is important!
  2. We used brown sugar but you can use regular sugar too.
  3. Substitute rice vinegar with distilled vinegar if you can't get rice vinegar.
  4. Recipe quantity comes to 7 ounces/ 200 grams. That's about 5 servings if used in sushi and as a dip.
  5. You can flavor your mayo. See in post for flavor ideas.

馃摐 Variations

To make a spicy sriracha mayonnaise, add 1 Teaspoon sriracha sauce to the mayonnaise at the end, when the mayo is silky smooth and white.

For a mustard mayonnaise, add 陆 Teaspoon of Dijon mustard or your favorite mustard paste or powder, to the other ingredients before you make the mayo sauce.

I also love to make curry flavored mayonnaise.

馃ィ Uses

Japanese are crazy about their mayo! They add it to all kinds of foods.

The most popular use for this mayonnaise is in sushi. Yes, there is mayo in your sushi!

Fill a soft squeeze bottle with your homemade mayonnaise and add about 1 tablespoon worth into your sushi before you roll it up.

Kani salad is also prepared with Japanese mayonnaise. It's a surimi based salad.

The condiment is also great as a dip with Japanese fried chicken (karaage) and conventional french fries.

Mayonnaise is also used in hibachi sauces, such as in a yum yum sauce.

You can use it as a dressing too, the same way you would use any other mayonnaise.

馃嵄 Storing

Store the sauce in a squeezable airtight bottle or any other airtight container with a lid.

Keep it away from exposed oxygen (hence why in a container with lid) or else it loses its beautiful silky white texture and turns almost translucent (and that doesn't look that great).

You can keep your mayo in the fridge for up to 1鈥2 days before it goes bad.

It's better to make fresh may whenever you need it.

馃挱 FAQs

Is Japanese Mayo gluten-free?

Yes, homemade Japanese mayonnaise can be gluten-free if you use the right ingredients. Your vinegar shouldn't contain malt. Check ingredient labels, they shouldn't contain wheat.

How to make Japanese mayo from regular mayo?

Add about 1 Teaspoon rice vinegar and 陆 Teaspoon sugar to 戮 cup (200 grams) of store bought American mayonnaise and combine.

What to use instead of rice vinegar?

You can use plain distilled vinegar instead of rice vinegar. Although, it tastes way better with rice vinegar.
