Total Time: 10

Yield: about 3/4 cup

This Catalan-style garlic sauce is great for summer days because it contains no eggs, so it can't go bad in the heat.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Juice of 1/4 lemon

Instructions:

If you have a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic and salt until you have a fine paste. Otherwise, use a small food processor to blend these two ingredients. Transfer garlic to a nonreactive bowl. Slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup of the oil, whisking constantly to form an emulsion. Whisk in lemon juice, then slowly drizzle in remaining oil, whisking constantly.

    This was one of my beloved George Roe II favorite dishes I made for him, I added extra extra-virgin olive oil and mixed it with angel hair pasta YUMMO.
