Aioli is sharp and rich, fragrant and creamy all in one! Originally from the Mediterranean, aioli has become popular all over the world. It goes with everything, and it’s endlessly customisable. We like ours with seaweed, because it gives an extra boost of vitamins and minerals, not to mention a lovely umami flavour which brings out the notes of the other ingredients. Traditional aioli is made without egg yolks, but it’s more common these days to use them to help emulsify the oil and bring that luxurious texture to the finished sauce.
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp Arctic Ocean Greens
3 tbsp water
1 tsp Arctic Seaweed Salt
180ml neutral oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
Soak the Arctic Ocean Greens in the water for 15 minutes.
In a food processor, add all the ingredients except for the oil and seaweed salt. Blend together, then whilst the processor is running on a low speed, slowly add the oil in a steady drizzle.
When the aioli is thick and smooth, season to taste with the seaweed salt.
