Asian mayonnaise

freshly made mayonnaise with chili and soy sauce
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Category: Condiment


  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (peeled and finely grated)
  • 1/4 cup roasted sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. To make by hand, use a wire whisk to beat together the egg yolk, mustard, and ginger in a bowl. Combine the oils. Begin to add the oil VERY SLOWLY, a little at a time (otherwise it won’t thicken)
  2. as you beat, adding more as each bit is incorporated. Once a thick emulsion forms – you’ll know it – you can add the oil a little faster. Depending on how fast you beat, the whole process should take 2-5 minutes.
  3. To make by machine, put the egg yolk, mustard and ginger in the container of a blender or food processor and turn on the machine. While it’s running, add the oils in a VERY SLOW steady stream. Once an emulsion forms, you can add the oil a little faster. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Add the soy sauce, lime juice, chile, and sesame seeds and stir.
