Here is a quick and easy recipe for a nice garlic aioli. All you need is egg yolk, garlic, lemon juice and salt. That is it, and it comes together quickly.
Remove peel from garlic and smash with a fork on a cutting board.
In a bowl, beat egg yolk and add salt, lemon juice and smashed garlic.
In a slow stream add the olive oil while whisking.
Continue doing this until all the olive oil has been added.
The resulting mixture should be slightly thick. It is very important to add the oil in a very slow stream. Enjoy with French Fries, crab-cakes, broiled fish or French bread!
