    Serves: 20 

    • 3 medium egg yolks
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 teaspoon French mustard
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 300ml oil
    • 1 tablespoon orange juice
    • 1 teaspoon tomato purée
    • 6 drops Tabasco® sauce

    Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks, salt, pepper and mustard. With an electric hand whisk, whisk the yolk mixture until well blended and creamy. Add the lemon juice and continue whisking. Begin adding the oil, a small amount at a time, until the mayonnaise thickens.
    2. Gradually add in the orange juice, tomato purée and the Tabasco®. Taste, and add a little more of each if desired.
    3. When all the ingredients are well blended and the mayonnaise is light and creamy transfer to a bowl and chill in the fridge until needed.


    Making mayonnaise can be a little tricky because you want the egg yolk and the oil to emulsify and form a strong bond. The trick is to add the oil very slowly when you start whisking, this can mean a drop at a time. If you are patient, you will be rewarded.

    this mayo was sexual in the best way  -  18 Jan 2017


    Wonderful. I added extra Tabasco® sauce. I also used my blender that has a special mayo attachment instead of whisking by hand.  -  01 Dec 2015
