Kewpie "Original" Mayonnaise
When it comes to using mayonnaise in Japanese dishes, there’s nothing quite like Kewpie! With its rich and creamy texture made from egg yolks and a unique blend of vinegars, this Japanese mayo provides a satisfyingly rich and smooth consistency, refreshing aroma and tangy depth of taste not found in standard American supermarket mayos. It also boasts the coveted "fifth taste” known as umami, a term used to describe the savory flavor of a food.
Loved by chefs, Kewpie is commonly used in sushi bars for spicy rolls and dynamite sauce. To whip up your own dynamite sauce at home, combine a quarter cup of Kewpie with one tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (add more to taste). You can also add masago for texture. Kewpie works great on salads and vegetables, too. Mix a third cup of Kewpie with two tablespoons white miso and one teaspoon soy sauce for a delicious Japanese-style dressing.
