Spicy Mayo Sauce - Recipe

If you've ever ordered spicy tuna rolls at a sushi restaurant then you're probably familiar with the spicy mayo sauce that goes on top. This is one of my favorite sauces to make and it's really simple :)

1/2 Cup - Mayonnaise (Hellman's brand)
2 Tbsp - Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (add more or less to adjust spiciness)
1 Tsp - Toasted Sesame Oil

Combine all ingredients and mix together until blended. Refrigerate overnight (this step is optional but I found that this helps bring out the heat of the Sriracha). Mix ingredients briefly before serving. Serve as a dipping sauce or over sushi, eat and enjoy.

Side Note: If you bought all these ingredients new then the mayonnaise will probably be the first ingredient to expire so, this sauce should stay good up till that point just be sure to keep it refrigerated. Also, all mayonnaise brands are not created equal in flavor that's why I suggest using Hellman's for this. I also feel in my personal opinion that no matter how big a batch of this sauce you make all you really need is 1 tsp of the toasted sesame oil (the oil seems to help break down the mayonnaise into more of a sauce/liquid consistency and adds a very slight mild smokey flavor) but you can choose to add in more if you want although it's actually a bit optional of an ingredient to some people that make spicy mayo.
