Aioli

I am continuing to battle the bulge of the pantry and refrigerator!  Too much stuff bought: on sale, on whim, or because of temporary insanity.  Because of that, I was looking for a sauce to put on some of the seafood in the freezer.  A quick perusal of my 'to try' file on the computer turned up this Aioli recipe. I have always been a bit intimidated by the whole mayonnaise type sauce and have never tried one before.  This blog convinced me to try it at some point, hence it being in my 'to try' file.  It was not as hard as I feared.  It was a bowl of yummy garlicky goodness.  A little goes a long way too, so while uber fattening, you can get away with just a tad.  I highly recommend this recipe.  It was a nice addition to our shrimp (or any seafood as far as I can tell), I think we will have sandwiches for lunch tomorrow using this instead of mayo, and I am milling around in my mind how to use it in a salad dressing.
