This is a very quick aioli I made when I couldn't find one to make in just a few minutes. It needs time in the fridge to allow the flavors to blend. Perfect on grilled and fried fish.

This is ok as a garlic mayonnaise. But lets call this what it is...garlic mayonnaise. This is NOT aioli. For those that are a bit confused mayo and aioli are not the same thing not even close and not the same ingredients. Read More

I used this recipe last time I steamed artichokes and came back here to find it again. It's very good and those I shared it with thought so too. Only modification I made is that I roasted the garlic in olive oil before making the sauce instead of adding it raw. Read More

This is a good aioli recipe. Normally we're not much into cayenne but adding just a pinch gave this a nice zip. Read More

Delicious! Made as written and would not change a thing. Be sure to allow this to sit in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. I will def be making this again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I just need a little of this so I only made 1/3 of the recipe. I added a couple of pinches of white and cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt. I also added a heaping teaspoon of chopped fresh chives. I liked this one because it called for less lemon juice than some others. Hubs really liked it so I know I ll be making it again. Served with crab cakes. Read More

I needed some aioli NOW so I tossed the minced garlic w/ a little bit of olive oil and microwaved it for 30 or 40 seconds to mellow the flavor and release the flavor into the oil. Then I stirred it together with the other ingredients (skipped the cayenne) and stuck it in the fridge while the burgers cooked. Spread it on a just-grilled burger and topped with sliced avocado. OM-.... SO good! I will definitely make this again and again. Read More
