Very good garlic taste. I was looking for the garlic sauce that they use on shawarma which is a little thicker than this and has less lemon zing. It was too much lemon for me, so I added a bit more salt to combat the zing. Next time I'm going to try it with about half the oil and less than a quarter of the lemon juice, with salt to taste.
tha' not the sauce iwas looking, the one i need is a really white sauce thick and kind of sugary
This is fantastic, just like LaShish. I recomend using a blender, it did not emulsify when I used the food processor. I also use canola oil instead of EVOO
I was looking for a recipe that duplicated the garlic sauce from Zankou chicken. This was great! Next time I might substitute 1/2 of the olive oil with canola, the sauce had a strong olive oil taste. Served with grilled chicken, lamb, tabouleh & pita bread.
I have been looking for this garlic recipe for a while now. I love it. A little less lemon and maybe a bit more salt. I didn't use all of the olive oil either. Great with chicken, lamb, hummus and pita. I put it on everything. The taste of garlic will be with you for several days.
I love all lebanese foods and I love anything with garlic so for me this was out of this world. This is very garlicky so you can tone it down to your taste to maybe 4 small bulbs. Like previous reviewers, I cut down on the oil a bit.
This sauce is great on everything: fish, chicken, vegetables, bread. Sometimes I cooked the meats with the sauce, other times I topped the meats with the sauce after cooking. It makes a great sandwich spread too. The only change I made was 2 cups EVOO instead of 3. Because I find EVOO to have a very strong taste, I used 1/2 C of the dark green EVOO, and 1 1/2 C light EVOO. This was a big hit with friends and guests.
Although I'm giving it 4 stars, it didn't turn out for me, it was too runny, not think like it should be- but maybe I didn't do it right, I'll try it again because the flavor is good.
