“We used to get a pinkish mayo, supposedly for fish, but I never liked it. I found a better alternative -- and super quick too -- in a magazine column. I'm saving it here because I'll make it for sure!”
1 1/2 cup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup mayonnaise, tangy (250 ml tangy mayo, Woolworths in SA has an excellent one)
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup (60 ml tomato ketchup like All Gold which is made from real tomatoes)
  • 1 -2 anchovy fillet, chopped up and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, finely chopped (or use mild onion)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or use more, to taste)
  • 14 teaspoon white pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients well. Put into a sterilized bottle and keep in the fridge. It will last for ages, just like ordinary mayo.
  2. Do taste, as you might want to add more lemon juice or cream. Finely chopped parsley could be added when serving the sauce.
