Ingredients

Directions

  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and add a pinch sea salt. Prepare a separate bowl of ice water and set aside. Blanch half the garlic in the boiling water for about 5 seconds, and then dip it in ice water for about 2 seconds. Squeeze the excess liquid from the cloves with your hands and place in a food processor with the remaining fresh garlic. Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil into the food processor with a pinch of salt. Process on high speed until coarsely ground, 5 to 10 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a sieve and press the liquid through into a bowl using a ladle. Serve with lamb ribs.

Cook’s Note

Blanching half the garlic before blending will create a milder taste and lighter texture.
