Super quick and so yummmy! Even better the next day. No changes needed. I used to top "Grandma's salmon cakes" recipe from this site also. Thanks Mema for sharing your recipe!

This is a good aioli recipe. Normally we're not much into cayenne but adding just a pinch gave this a nice zip.

I used this recipe last time I steamed artichokes and came back here to find it again. It's very good and those I shared it with thought so too. Only modification I made is that I roasted the garlic in olive oil before making the sauce instead of adding it raw.

Delicious! Made as written and would not change a thing. Be sure to allow this to sit in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I just need a little of this so I only made 1/3 of the recipe. I added a couple of pinches of white and cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt. I also added a heaping teaspoon of chopped fresh chives. I liked this one because it called for less lemon juice than some others. Hubs really liked it, so I know I’ll be making it again. Served with crab cakes.
