Ingredients

  • 2 or 3 fresh garlic cloves, peeled and chopped. (If they've started to sprout, don't use them for aioli.)
  • Large pinch coarse sea or kosher salt
  • 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2/3 cup pure olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Place garlic and salt in a food processor fitted with a metal blade, or in a blender. Pulse for 2 seconds. Add the egg yolk and lemon juice, and pulse on and off until blended. Turn on and begin adding the olive oil (pure first, then extra-virgin) in a thin stream. If it becomes too thick, thin it out with some room-temperature water and continue adding oil until you've used it all. Finish with pepper and (if necessary) a bit more salt.

The reason for using 2/3 pure olive oil is to keep the flavor of the oil from becoming overpowering. This is a perfect example of how by using a fully-flavored extra virgin oil you can use much less, thereby saving money and getting better flavor.

Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
