Aioli is mayonnaise enriched with garlic and lemon which originated in Provence, France. From a culinary point of view it has migrated to Spain as far as daily use is concerned but the recipe is still used worldwide. Aioli is especially popular in Spanish tapas recipes.
Aioli goes well with a huge variety of dishes, some even pour it on chips (I'm definitely guilty of that!). But it goes best with shellfish, it truly transforms delicious food into heavenly food.
