Lemon Aioli

  • 2 large egg yolks*
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup water

Directions

  • With the back of a knife, crush the garlic. Gradually work the salt into the crushed garlic to make a paste. Place in a bowl. Whisk the eggs and lemon juice with the garlic paste and incorporate. Add the cayenne. Slowly whisk in the oil, a little at a time, until all the oil is incorporated and the mixture emulsifies. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time to thin the sauce to drizzling consistency.
