Aioli is a garlic sauce, a traditional Italian sauce, very similar to homemade mayonnaise.
It is mayonnaise with a difference!
This garlicky mayonnaise type sauce is wonderful served with fish or potatoes.
It also makes a great dip for vegetables and other crudites.
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 egg yolks
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 slice dry French bread without crust, soaked in milk, wrung out and broken into pieces (optional)
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cold water
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Finely chopped parsley (optional)
Skin, then chop finely the garlic cloves. Beat in the egg yolks, salt and bread. Add the oil slowly while beating constantly. As the sauce thickens, beat in the water and lemon juice.
Note: This aioli sauce is very easy to make using a food processor. No beating required.
Serve over fish, cold boiled potatoes, beet rounds, steak or boiled beef. It is also good served with bread sticks or other dippers as a dipping sauce.
