  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice)
  • 240ml or 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1 pinch of sea salt


  1. Place 4 to 6 garlic cloves and 1 egg yolk in a blender. Blend and scrape the sides of your blender as regularly as needed.
  2. Add a tiny bit of olive oil. Going slow at the start is KEY for success.
  3. Add a good pinch of sea salt and another tiny drop of olive oil.
  4. Keep blending and add another drop of olive oil.
  5. Repeat the process until the sauce starts forming a mayonnaise-like consistency. Once the consistency is more like mayonnaise, add more oil regularly. Keep going at it patiently.
  6. After another minute of blending, add the juice of half a lemon (about one tablespoon). And continue adding up to 240 ml/one cup of olive oil.
  7. Your homemade aioli is ready! Place it in a bowl and enjoy. It’s perfect with fish, but also with meat, chicken, roasted vegetables and as a base for salad dressing.
