Harissa Aioli

Aioli is basically seasoned mayonnaise. This spicy version is delicious on just about anything. Our Harissa Olive Oil is infused with chili peppers and spices (like cumin and coriander). Serve with burgers, chicken or fish.  Can be used as a dip or condiment. It’s awesome on French Fries or fresh veggie sticks. 

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Harvest Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic
  • 1 1/4 cups Fresh Harvest Harissa Olive Oil

 

Directions

Bring all ingredients to room temperature. This is very important to get the proper consistency.

In a bowl or the container provided with your immersion blender, combine the garlic, lemon juice, balsamic, salt, and egg yolks. Place the immersion blender in the bowl and process in short pulses until smooth. With the motor running, add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth and blended. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the aioli to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Makes 1 1/2 cups.
