    Spicy mayo sounds heaven! This looks like the perfect condiment! Lovely post Nami! :)

    I have half of the ingredients. Just need to get the mayo.

    Kewpie is my favorite! I don’t like any other mayonaise except for japanese! and you can always tell when it’s not! xx

    I love spicy mayo. Try adding a touch of sesame oil and it takes this mayo to a whole new level.

    • Nami June 23, 2013, 8:07 pm

      Must give it a try! Thank you Vicki! :)

      • Christopher July 16, 2013, 6:04 am

        Add a few drops of sesame oil to that and it takes it to another level of yummy!!!

        • Nami July 17, 2013, 7:19 am

          Thanks Christopher! :)

    Used this with some tuna and a dash of cayenne pepper.

      Thanks for your feedback! :)

    Hi Nami. My husband, who hails from Hawaii, and I are stuck in the Midwest and it took forever to find the right Mayo for making Spicy Ahi Poke. Thanks for the Kewpie suggestion. He made it tonight and it was ono!

    • Nami January 5, 2014, 2:00 am

      Hi Mrs. Unga! So happy to hear this recipe worked out for you! Thank you for your feedback. Kewpie mayo is quite delicious isn’t it? :)

  • Shelby March 31, 2014, 1:33 pm

    It also goes well with artichoke

    • Nami March 31, 2014, 4:09 pm

      Hi Shelby! Oh that sounds like a great idea!

  • shirley April 14, 2014, 3:53 pm

    Hello, I was just wondering it can be any Japanese mayo brand right? Will the taste still be the same?

    • Nami April 14, 2014, 4:10 pm

      Hi Shirley! Yes, it can be any Japanese brand. Hope you enjoy this recipe! :)

  • Elke May 10, 2014, 12:48 pm

    I make this all the time and use it on hamburgers. Love it!!!

    • Nami May 12, 2014, 9:25 pm

      Hi Elke! Yes, it’s nice on hamburgers! :D

  • Gerald June 8, 2014, 6:36 pm

    Love your recipe for pickle daikon, however—is there a way to get rid of the smell??
    Got to try the japanese mayo…been using Best Foods and its pretty good.

    • Nami June 9, 2014, 1:59 am

      Hi Gerald! Ohhh! I know EXACTLY what you mean! I love that recipe too, but smell in the fridge is not so pleasant… I tried double packing (ziploc, and another air tight container) and it helps a bit… It’s the daikon smell….

  • Probo July 1, 2014, 9:25 am

    I cannot find sriracha sauce in my country, Nami! How about tabasco? Can be subtitute of sriracha? Thank you

    • Nami July 3, 2014, 6:21 am

      Hi Probo! Hmmm I have never used tabasco, but that or Asian chili sauce might be good alternatives. :)

  • Elena Constantinou July 15, 2014, 5:20 am

    Perfect recipes!!! Wow!!!!

    • Nami July 15, 2014, 9:39 am

      Thank you, Elena! :)

  • Lucia August 8, 2014, 5:59 pm

    Hey!! I´m from Peru and I can´t find Sriracha here. What can I use instead??? (love your recipes!!!) thank youuuu

    • Nami August 12, 2014, 11:44 am

      Hi Lucia! Any kind of hot sauce it’s available there? Preferably Asian hot sauce such as Sambal Oelek (Indonesian/Malaysian/Singaporean), Chili Garlic Sauce (Chinese), Gochujang (Korean)… Hope this helps!

  • Cat November 13, 2014, 3:18 pm

    What a simple but brilliant idea! I want to try this but Sriracha is hard to find in my country (Philippines). Most Vietnamese and Thai restaurants have them and I always fight the urge to steal a bottle ;) I think they buy in bulk from outside the country. Is there anything I can substitute for it?
    Thank you, Nami!

    • Nami November 13, 2014, 7:30 pm

      Hi Cat! You can use other kinds of hot sauce available. Or you can add cayenne pepper for more spice, etc. The flavor will be a bit different though. I didn’t know Sriracha was hard to find there. I hope you can find a bottle easily at a local store one day! :)

    I love this receipt shushi
