A few weeks ago I published a recipe for gochujang; a Korean red chili paste. This week I’m sharing a recipe for gochujang mayo, which uses that paste.
What Is Gochujang Mayo and Why Would I Want to Make It?
Gochujang mayo is a condiment that’s super easy to make and packed full of flavor. Regular mayonnaise is a classic that’s been around for hundreds of years. It’s been used in about a bazillion different ways over the years. One of my favorite uses for it is to spice it up with other flavors.
I’ve made harissa, sriracha, and chipotle mayo for a variety of different dishes. This gochujang mayo is delicious and might be my new favorite. Like the gochujang paste that it’s made from, it’s a little bit sweet and has a nice little kick of heat.
If I have gochujang already made in the fridge, I can make gochujang mayo in less than 5 minutes. I just whisk together regular mayonnaise with a couple of tablespoons of gochujang and a squeeze of lime juice.
Ways to Use Gochujang Mayo
Gochujang mayo is not my own invention. I’ve seen it used as a burger topping, dipping sauce, sushi ingredient, and salad dressing. Here are some of my recommendations:
I really can’t tell you how excited I am about gochujang and all the different ways to use it. Hopefully, this mayo recipe will inspire you to give making the paste a try. More Korean recipes coming soon!
