This twist on the classic garlic mayonnaise is as simple as blending mayo and fresh ginger in a processor. "I'm a chef at a place called Slightly North of Broad in Charleston, I don't let my cooking at home get too complicated," says Chef Joe Dion of North Charleston, South Carolina. "Whenever I have the chance I enjoy getting together with friends and cooking for them" This dish is awesome! With the right blending of Asian seasonings, it was a delight to eat. Bon Apetit, April 2005 -- Joe Dion, North Charleston, SC. Marinating time 30 minutes up to an hour.

This recipe is top drawer...but I did make some changes. The marinade makes up alot, so I cut the recipe in half. I only used 3/4 cup mayonnaise for the ginger aioli. Classy recipe!!
