Aïoli

Garlicky, Rich, and Luscious

Aïoli is a mayonnaise flavored with fresh garlic that is popular in southern France and parts of Spain.  It is a perfect way to add richness to seafood, steamed vegetables, and other simple flavors.

Use the best garlic you can find and fresh free range eggs.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the garlic, egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and sugar. Whisk a few seconds to combine but don't over-work it.
  2. Combine the canola oil and olive oil into a single measuring cup.
  3. Whisking constantly, very slowly drizzle the oil into the egg mixture until thick, creamy, and pale yellow in color. If the mixture becomes too thick, you can add a little more lemon juice or vinegar, about 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to slightly loosen the mixture to make it easier to add the remainder of the oil.
  4. Season with a few drops of Tabasco and more salt, to taste.


Use immediately or else refrigerate until ready to use.  Aïoli will keep about a week in a covered container, refrigerated.
