Recipe by Northwest Lynnie
This tempting, garlicky sauce has an Asian touch to it. I like to serve it with crab and fish cakes, and as a dip with mushrooms, baby corn, daikon radish slices, sugar snap peas, baby carrots, yellow bell pepper slices, and cherry tomatoes. For a beautiful presentation, hollow out a small purple cabbage in which to place a container of the aioli - outstanding with the colorful veggies. The sauce may be prepared a week in advance.
- 2 cups mayonnaise (for best flavor, do not substitute)
- 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 dash cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 cup dry breadcrumbs
Directions See How It's Made
- Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.
- Chill at least an hour to blend flavors and thicken the aioli.
- NOTE: I've had good luck freezing fresh ginger knobs.
- They peel easily with a knife while still frozen, and grate easily with a microplane grater- just freeze small recipe size pieces individually (I put each piece in its own sandwich zip bag, then place all the bags inside a quart size freezer zip bag).
- The 60 minutes cooking time is for chilling.
