Aioli is basically a sauce made from few ingredients and emulsified with olive oil. You can create the variation of your choice based on which additional spice or ingredient you want to add. For instance, if you like New Orleans foods, you can make a spicy Cajun aioli; or for a Mexican flavor just add a bit of jalapeno. One thing is critical to me when I make it, it must have a lot of garlic, and zero mayonnaise, smile, instead, I use Tzatziki.
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $1.45
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free __√__ Vegetarian __√__
Servings: Approx. ¾ c. sauce
3 med. to large garlic cloves, chopped (.30)
1 tsp. of chopped cilantro (.10)
2 tsp. (or more) of fresh lime juice (.20)
1/3 c. Tzatziki sauce (.25)
Pinch of Angie’s dry seasoning (0)
1/4 tsp. Smoked Paprika (.10)
1/3 c. of Angie’s Basting Olive Oil (.50)
Combine all the ingredients EXCEPT THE BASTING OIL in a food processor or blender and process for 20 seconds.
Then, with the food processor or blender running, drizzle in the basting oil very slowly. I just used my Magic Bullet and worked just as well. Store in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to about a week or 2. (If it last that long, smile.)
Use it as dip for French fries, or as sandwich spread, or drizzle over roasted salmon or any other seafood or meat.
