Why We Love This

Why have tomato sauce (ketchup), when you can make your own spicy dipping sauce that blows the regular stuff out the water?

Make it in a batch, so you can have it on hand as you need it. Whether it’s to dip in a sausage roll or two, or even a Thai spring roll!

What is Gochujang Mayonnaise? 

Gochujang mayo is a spicy, creamy delight for the senses. This dipping sauce combines iconic Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise, Korean gochujang paste, garlic and sesame oil together into one very tasty sauce.

This pairs perfectly with finger food and entertaining bites that need a flavour kick, such as our air fryer popcorn chicken. Or use it to add a spicy kick to beef burgers.

What You’ll Need

  • Kewpie Mayonnaise – This mayo is on a whole other level on the flavour scale and is, in our opinion, far tastier than it’s Western whole-egg counterpart. You can pick it up at most supermarkets or Asian grocers. If you really can’t find it, we’d recommend you try and make your own Kewpie, or sub with whole egg mayo.
  • Gochujang – Is a Korean chilli paste and is usually found in a red tub at your Asian supermarket or online.
  • Garlic – Minced garlic or half a clove will work it’s magic in this dipping sauce. Sub with garlic powder in a pinch.
  • Sesame Oil – The nutty aroma of the sesame oil adds another level to this sauce. Omit instead of substituting if you don’t have it.

Wandercook’s Tips

  • Don’t like spice? Halve the amount of gochujang for a more mild dipping sauce.
  • Leftover gochujang? Try these gochujang uses next.
  • Storage – Keep in an airtight and sterilised jar or container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

FAQs

Can I use regular whole egg mayonnaise instead of Kewpie mayonnaise?

You can use whole egg mayonnaise. This will alter the flavour slightly though, so adjust the measurements accordingly, to your preferred taste.

What can I use instead of gochujang?

For a similar dipping sauce, you can swap out the gochujang for sweet chilli or sriracha.

What can I use gochujang mayo for?

The best use for gochujang mayonnaise is as a dipping sauce, but if you have leftovers there’s plenty of other things you can use it for. It also goes well in burgers as a sauce or even as a salad dressing.

Variations

  • Add Rice Wine Vinegar – for a slightly tangy edge to the sauce.
  • Pop in Tomato Sauce / Ketchup – for added flavour or to tone down the spice.
