Aioli | Garlic Mayonnaise Super Easy Homemade Aioli Recipe

Aioli is the garlic mayonnaise french fry dip you need to be using. This allioli recipe is made with mayonnaise, lemon, olive oil and garlic. It’s undoubtedly easy, quick and perfectly creamy.

It is typically described as a garlic mayonnaise and is easier to whip up than you may think.

The trick to getting the signature thick texture is to add the oil very slowly at first, allowing the egg and the oil to emulsify.

In a nutshell Aioli recipe or Allioli is a recipe for a flavoured mayonnaise, originating from Provence in southern France, that is heavily seasoned with garlic.

It is served to complement meat such as lamb or chicken, fish and vegetables (steamed vegetables or potatoes).

You can use this allioli recipe as a dipping sauce to be served with a platter of boiled or fresh vegetables, fish, shellfish, mutton kebabs, and/or chicken.

Considered to be the “Butter of Provence” aioli has many uses and is a common condiment, sauce, and cooking ingredient, much like butter for many recipes.

What is the difference between Mayonnaise & Aioli?

Aioli is quite similar to mayonnaise. They’re both made of raw eggs emulsified with oil.

The first difference is here – mayonnaise is made with a neutral oil, while allioli is made with olive oil.

Both recipes need a little bit of acid and that is the second difference – mayonnaise uses vinegar, while aioli uses lemon juice.

Thirdly, the French recipes call for a little bit of mustard.

Fourthly, allioli also contains garlic. The word aïoli literally means oil and garlic (ail is garlic in French).

What can I serve homemade Aioli with?

Garlic Mayonnaise or Aioli is usually served with seafood, fish soup, and croutons. It is also served with potatoes boiled with salt and bay laurel.

In Spain, particularly in Catalan cuisine, allioli is often served with arròs negre, arròs a banda, fideuà, with grilled snails (cargols a la llauna).

It is also paired with lamb, rabbit, vegetables, boiled codfish (bacallà a la catalana, bacallà amb patates).

Allioli comes in other varieties such as allioli de codony (allioli with boiled quince, not the preserve) or allioli with boiled pear.

Other commonly used vegetables are beets, fennel, celery, zucchini, cauliflower, chickpeas, and raw tomato.

It is delicious as a dip for grilled or steamed vegetables, or dolloped onto simply cooked fish or spread as a condiment on a burger.


How can I store Aioli?

Since aioli is made with fresh ingredients & garlic allioli sauce should be kept under refrigeration. It stays well in the fridge for 2-3 days. If you are using vacuum sealed jars, it would stay good for 2 weeks.

Can I freeze Allioli?

Emulsified oil-based condiments – like mayonnaise, allioli, even vinaigrette – will break in the freezer (it will seperate) and the result will not at all resemble what you first intended to freeze.

So, you should not freeze homemade aioli.
