Basil Aioli.

1 large egg 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 to 6 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup lightly packed rinsed fresh mint leaves, fresh basil leaves, or coarsely chopped Italian parsley
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup olive oil

In a food processor, mix egg, lemon juice, garlic {to taste}, salt, mint leaves and lemon peel until well blended. With machine running, gradually add olive oil in a thin, steady stream until all is incorporated. Add more salt {to taste}.

·      Quick Aioli: Omit the egg and oil, and use 1 cup purchased mayonnaise instead. Mix mayonnaise with lemon juice, garlic, salt, mint leaves, and lemon peel until smooth. Makes about 1 cup.

Add to grill shrimp & veggies for dinner. Enjoy!
