Method

Combine egg, egg white, miso, vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt and cayenne in a blender or food processor and pulse until combined.

Pour oil into a measuring cup with a pouring spout.

With the motor running, pour oil into blender in a very thin stream and blend until a thick mixture forms.

Transfer to a bowl or jar.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors blend.

Taste mayonnaise and stir in a bit more vinegar, salt or cayenne if needed.

Sprinkle with bonito flakes or nori flakes, if desired.

Mayonnaise will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
