Why do we like spicy mayonnaise so much?
Spicy mayonnaise sauce goes great with spicy tuna and other spicy sushi rolls. The hotness of the chilli spices the sushi with an entirely different kind of hotness than that given from the wasabi and mayonnaise contributes to the juicy fatty level of things.
Alright, let’s make some spicy sushi sauce!
You will need:
- 1 tbsp Mayonnaise (preferably Kewpie)
- 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
- -optional- 1 sesame oil
- -optional- 1 tsp lemon juice
Stir in a small bowl to combine evenly. Make extra sure the hot Sriracha sauce is evenly spread. If not used immediately, store in your refrigerator. The recipe described above has mild spiciness in mind. Make sure you experiment with different ratios of mayo and chilli to accommodate your personal hot sauce requirements.

Once combined, use a spoon to load the newly made hot sauce into a squeeze bottle. If you don’t have one, or if making a small amount, you could also use a snack baggy, and pinch a tiny hole in the bottom. In order to use the sauce, simply squeeze the baggy to let the sauce leave a trail of hotness along the roll.
