Paleo Mayo by Nom Nom Paleo (Michelle Tam)


  • 1 large egg yolk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • ¾ cup macadamia nut oil or avocado oil

**All ingredients should be at room temperature**

“Here’s how I made it: I put all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and whisked until the yolk thickened and the color brightened (around 30 seconds). I added ¼ cup of the oil in a slow steady stream while I whisked vigorously (~1 minute). To keep my bowl in place, I put it on a rubber mat and tied a towel around the base. If there’s someone else in the house, recruit him or her to slowly pour in the oil while you whisk.

After the oil is incorporated, I slowly added the second ¼ cup of oil and incorporated it the same way as the first (~30 seconds). I added the last ¼ cup of oil all at once (per the instructions) and whisked it to emulsify the mayo completely.”

**Disclaimer: Teddy mixes these together by taste to form a marinade, so they are rough estimates. Go with what feels right for your palette.
Chicken thighs (or legs)
3 green onions
3 garlic cloves
~tsp pepper
1 bottle coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
~1/2 tbs chili (or more if you like it spicy)
~1/2 tbs sesame seed oil

1. Combine all ingredients and marinade over night
2. In an oiled pan (olive oil works great), sear the chicken on all sides to get a crunchy outer skin
3. Eat.
