Condiment Week! ~ Lemon Aioli

by on September 30, 2009

Lemon Aioli

Condiment Week continues with Lemon Aïoli!

It’s true what everyone says – once you make your own mayonnaise the jarred stuff just never quite measures up. What was once a means to keep your sandwich from being overly dry becomes a significant flavor enhancer in its own right. While aïoli isn’t quite exactly the same as mayonnaise, it’s often used interchangeably in cooking and I definitely enjoy both in panini.

My favorite way to use lemon aïoli is on fish sandwiches, but it’s great with chicken, turkey and vegetables as well – in fact, this recipe actually originally accompanied asparagus. There’s no missing the lemon here – the spread is quite zesty. You’ll want to be sure to use a good-quality olive oil, as the flavor features very prominently.

Looks good, but mos def lemon mayo, not lemon aioli. I must admit though, I am a garlic freak 🙂
