Simple and Perfect Spicy Mayo

I love the spicy mayo that comes with sushi rolls.  It adds that delicious spicy flavor, smooth texture and appealing drizzle to sushi, sandwiches, fish, grilled chicken and meat. It is expensive to purchase ready-made and oh, so simple to prepare yourself.

I was determined to discover a recipe for spicy mayo.  It was simpler than I had ever imagined.  It has three simple ingredients and allows for adjusting the heat of the finished product by adding more or less of the sriracha or hot sauce.

It has become our favorite dip and I try to always have a squirt bottle filled with spicy mayo in the refrigerator.  It will become your favorite accompaniment to salmon, grilled chicken and sandwiches, too.

4 tablespoons Sriracha or hot sauce

Whisk everything together or place all ingredients into the food processor and process until smooth and well-mixed.  Adjust amount of sriracha or hot sauce for milder or spicier flavor.

Carefully decant into a wide-mouthed squirt bottle.
