Lemon Dill Aioli
What is Aioli?
- Aioli means Garlic and Oil.
- It is an emulsion, like mayonnaise.
- Egg Yolk is often used as an emulsifier.
- For the last 20 years, it is common for flavored mayonnaise to be called Aioli, but purists would say otherwise.
So, while not Aioli in the true and purist definition, I think you will enjoy this quick Lemon Dill Aioli Sauce on many of your favorite foods.
As Mayonnaise is an emulsion of egg yolk, oil, vinegar and lemon, it’s kind of a short cut to making your own emulsion.
What’s in Lemon Dill Aioli?
- Fresh Lemon Juice
- Dill Weed
- Lemon Zest
- White Wine
- Dijon Mustard
The ingredients for Lemon Dill Aioli are few and they come together in less than 10 minutes.
Use a Hand Whisk to mix up all the ingredients.
This Lemon Dill Aioli recipe is just a guideline.
It can be customized for your individual palette.
For more Lemon flavor, add more Lemon Juice. Use as much Dill as you like. Dried or Fresh, both work.
If you are using the Aioli on my Pressure Cooker Beef and Lamb Gyros recipe instead of my Greek Tzatziki Sauce Recipe, you might want to add some crushed Garlic, or Granulated Garlic.
What do I eat with Lemon Dill Aioli?
- It’s best on Fish and Seafood. For example:
- Crab Cakes
- Air Fryer Salmon Croquettes
- Grilled Honey Garlic Salmon
- Shrimp Po Boy Roll – use it instead of the New Orleans Rémoulade Sauce.
Lemon Dill Aioli will last in the refrigerator for up to a week, max!
We use Small Mason Jars to store the Aioli.
Make sure to mix up a batch before making my Air Fryer Salmon Croquettes!
