For the Aïoli mayonnaise:

  • Peel the garlic and remove the germ, then then crush it in a mortar to make a paste.
  • Add the two small chilli peppers and the egg yolk, and season with salt & pepper, then whisk well while adding the oil in gradually to make the mayonnaise.
  • To check the texture, place a teaspoon in the mixture. If it stands up, the mayonnaise is perfect !

For the dish:

  • For the stock: fill a casserole dish with water.
