Lemon-Garlic Aioli

1 garlic clove, minced
Juice of 2 lemons
Zest of 1 lemon
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups canola oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


In the work bowl of a stick blender, combine the garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and egg yolks. Place the stick blender in the bowl and process in short pulses until smooth. With the motor running, add the oil in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth and blended. Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the aioli to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve
Add oil slowly to prevent aioli from curdling.
