The Magic of Japanese Mayo

At the heart of this recipe lies the secret ingredient – Japanese Mayo. Richer, creamier, and more savory than its American counterpart, this divine mayo adds an irresistible depth of flavor. We begin by taking a generous 1/4 cup of Japanese Mayo and placing it in a bowl, ready to become the base of our tantalizing sauce.

Sweetness with a Touch of Creaminess

To balance the savory notes, we concoct our sauce with a tablespoon of sweet and condensed milk. This luscious addition brings a creamy sweetness that beautifully complements the other flavors. The magic is in the combination of ingredients, making each bite a symphony of tastes.

Balancing with a Tangy Twist

To provide a touch of balance and acidity, we introduce a tablespoon of lemon juice to our sauce. This tangy element adds a refreshing zing and enhances the overall taste profile. It’s the perfect complement to the rich and creamy base.

The Sweet Finale

To round off this tantalizing symphony of flavors, we add a teaspoon of honey. The natural sweetness of honey brings a delightful harmony to the sauce, creating a perfect blend of sweet and savory. It’s a finishing touch that will leave you craving for more.
