Step 1: You will need:

  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 180 ml olive oil
  • 1 mortar and pestle
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 spoon

Step 2: Make the alioli

Put the garlic and the salt into the mortar and pound with the pestle until you have a fine garlic purée. Transfer the purée into the bowl and add the egg yolk and the lemon juice. Whisk until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Slowly add the oil in a thin stream while constantly whisking. Whisk until all the oil is incorporated and you end up with a thick, smooth, creamy mayonnaise.

Step 3: A Quick Tip

Make sure to add the oil very slowly while whisking briskly. If you add the oil too quickly, the alioli will separate!

Step 4: Store and refrigerate

Transfer to clean bowl and serve! You can also cover it with the cling film and refrigerate. It will last up to 5 days.
