Mayonnaise is a ubiquitous condiment and I often like to jazz it up a bit by adding a spicy ingredient! Some of my favourites include chipotle mayo, sriracha mayo and kimchi mayo. Kimchi is s Korean style of fermented cabbage which includes plenty of chili pepper flakes, along with a ton of flavour! I like to make my own kimchi and you can also find it in some local stores. Kimchi mayo is simply finely chopped kimchi mixed with mayo and I like to add some toasted sesame oil for an amazing aromatic. You can use this in any place where you would use mayo, like on burgers, in sandwiches, for dipping fries into, etc.
