Susan Feniger's Street Food's Spicy Yuzu Mayonnaise

This tangy Yuzu Mayonnaise from Susan Feniger's Street Food enhances the salty, briny flavors in her Tatsutage Fried Chicken, but it pairs equally well with a warm summer tomato and a couple slices of bacon on a BLT. If you can't find these specialty Japanese ingredients, the recipe still tastes great using regular store-bought mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and any fresh chili.
