All hail the mighty mayonnaise! Often used as a humble dipping sauce, this kitchen basic can be used in a couple of surprising ways.
Here’s a list of unique ways to use this creamy condiment:
1. Bake delicious cakes
It may sound strange to add mayonnaise to your sweet treats, but it’s a great substitute for eggs and butter in your baking recipes. In fact, it helps to make cakes even more moist.
2. Amp up your eggs
Lose the milk or water and put in a dollop of mayonnaise to make scrambled eggs even creamier. Or how about a Korean-inspired omelette that features finely chopped kimchi or some Musangchae (spicy pickled radish) for a bit of spice in every bite?
3. Create Asian-fusion salads
Creamy mayonnaise is the key to the richness of prawn salad, potato salad and coleslaw. Put an Asian spin on your salad dish by using crabstick, mangoes and julienne cucumbers topped with fish egg roe, sriracha sauce or creamy salted egg.
4. Toss up unique sandwich fillings
Get a good mix of shredded meat, pickles, onions and mayonnaise, and you’ve got yourself a hearty sandwich filling that’s perfect on whole wheat, brioche buns or paninis. Add in some miso for that Japanese umami flavour, or a hint of oriental Szechuan spice.
5. Use as marinades and rubs
Mayonnaise can be used to keep meats moist when you bake, roast or even grill them. Apply a thin layer so that it doesn’t stick on a pan or in the oven. It makes skin crispy, plus you won’t need to baste the meat later on!
This perfect harmony of oil and eggs is often used to give food that creamy pizzazz, so start experimenting with these different uses of mayonnaise and get your creative juices flowing with all-new fusion dishes!
