Do you know what “Aioli” actually is?

 

Well, if not, I’ll tell you right here. 

 

It’s really just a fancy way of saying garlic mayonnaise.

 

You’ll see aioli on a lot of menus in French restaurants and nowadays in many other restaurants when they want to make something sound fancy.

 

Basically it starts with a store bought or if you feel adventurous, a homemade mayo. Then, garlic is almost always added. Sometimes that’s all there is in the creamy spread.

 

Depending on the restaurant, and the theme of the dish, anything can be added for a more distinctive flavor.

 

In my recipe here, I made it similar to a place my husband and I recently had dinner. A nice seafood restaurant in our neighborhood.

 

I had the broiled salmon with the Dijon Aioli. It was light, creamy and made the fish taste amazing.

 

Just a little goes a long way.

This aioli recipe is great as a sandwich spread, on fish, steak, and love it on veggies.
