Mayonnaise really is the best condiment. Its smooth richness creates a wonderful mouth feel and it is the perfect balance to acid or salt in a dish. And European style mayonnaise is even better; light in texture, but rich in taste, you only need a little bit to make a big impact. If you’re looking for some excitement in the fridge department, Pams Finest has added some zing to this beloved Kiwi favourite with new Sriracha, Wasabi and Black Garlic mayonnaise flavours. Making lunches, dinners and snacks interesting just got a whole lot easier.
Here are some great ways to use flavoured mayo to spice up your dishes.
Got friends coming over at short notice? Crostini topped with hot or cold smoked salmon and a dab of Pams Finest Wasabi Mayo will impress, with minimal effort. Perfect with a glass of prosecco and some good gossip.
Popcorn chicken is totally addictive. We just love those tiny pieces of coated deep-fried goodness and there’s no better dipping sauce than Pams Finest Sriracha Mayo. The heat of the Sriracha is tempered by the mayonnaise to create the perfect balance of piquancy and creaminess for your mini crunchy chicken morsels. Just try and stop at one piece, or even five really.
If you’ve ever been to California, you’ll know that fish tacos are a firm favourite there, especially with surfers. Lightly battered or floured fish, slaw and creamy dressing are cradled in soft white tortillas with additions of jalapeños and fresh pickled onions to taste. Black Garlic Mayo is the perfect condiment to make your fish tacos sing at home. Its mellow, earthy flavour rounds the whole dish off perfectly.
Poke Bowls are the greatest gift Hawaii has given the culinary world, and it seems there are new outlets popping up all over the country. If you fancy slinging some together at home, buy some very fresh raw salmon or tuna, chop into chunks and toss with sesame oil, sesame seeds, spring onions and soy sauce. Serve on rice with a variety of toppings - mango, edamame beans, chunks of avocado, thinly sliced cucumber and carrot, pickled ginger, seaweed, red onion and crispy garlic are all good. The final touch is Pams Finest Wasabi Mayo to add a bit of zing to this wonderful mix of flavours and textures.
While all these recipes work incredibly well with the new Pams Finest range of mayonnaise, we just know you’ll find all kinds of everyday uses once you start using them: Hot chips with Sriracha mayo, dabs of Wasabi mayo on your salad, Black Garlic mayo with bacon and eggs on sourdough toast. You’ll be putting it on everything from breakfast to after-dinner snacks! If you’re pushed for time there’s no need to muck around with complicated cooking techniques, just cook your meat or vegetables and top with one of these flavours to make it instantly fabulous.
