About this recipe: This garlic mayonnaise originates from Provence and is excellent with fish. Serve with grilled salmon, fried cod or baked seabass. Vary the flavour by using olive oils from Greece, France or Italy, but definitely choose an extra virgin olive oil. Ensure you serve it fresh - do not store for more than a few hours.
