Aioli is a traditional south-western European mayonnaise made from garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and egg yolks. My mum insists on still making her aioli by hand and whisk, always stirring the aioli clock-wise. She never detours from the ingredients or the method her grandmother and mother taught her.
Although my mum would disagree, the great thing is that you can take the aioli flavour into any direction but still retain the essence of the garlicky and rich sauce.
I love food with a bit of a kick and thought wasabi would provide that for me - this quick and easy recipe for wasabi aioli tastes fantastic with Soba Chips. It goes equally well with barbecued chicken and fish.
Wasabi Aioli is delicious when served with Soba Chips, BBQ'd chicken and fish.
