What I Cooked Today… Aioli!

Aioli – a fresher version of mayonnaise!


3 egg yolks
1 cup canola oil
1 lemon
1 tsp cayenne pepper
salt to taste


In a large bowl place three egg yolks, and mix together with a whisk. Add the canola oil slowly – almost drop by drop – while whisking. If you do not do this slowly, you will not create an emulsion. You want it to be thick with no oily residue present. Lastly, add a little lemon and cayenne pepper and salt to taste.

Happy Cooking!
