Aioli

Today we are having grilled baby squid with aioli for lunch. To make aioli you will need:

4 peeled cloves of garlic
Half a teaspoon of salt
A large egg yolk
The juice of half a lemon
150ml extra virgin olive oil

Crush the garlic cloves into a bowl, add the salt and mix into a paste. Add the egg yolk and lemon juice, then start mixing with an electric whisk. Slowly dribble in the olive oil whilst mixing so it is incorporated and finally forms a thick fluid of mayonnaise-like consistency.

This makes a quite delicious aioli that has real garlic heat. Lovely.
