Holy Yogurt Aioli!

Again, I’m not a chef, so making an aioli at home was an accomplishment. It’s just not something I normally do on a Tuesday night. BUT….as I defrosted the Mahi Mahi I bought at Trader Joe’s, I saw a recipe attached to the packaging for an “Easy Aioli.” I decided to give it a try.

It obviously called for mayonnaise because that’s the main ingredient in an aioli. I don’t keep mayo at home because I’ve been substituting Greek Yogurt instead and it’s worked every time. So I figured, why not in an aioli? Let me tell you, it was one of the BEST aioli’s I’ve ever had and it took all of 3 minutes to make. It honestly tasted like the most sinful sauce, but it wasn’t.

All you need is:

  • 2 TBSP plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic; pressed
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in small bowl and stir until smooth. Top on fish, or anything you want. I even put it on our couscous and bok choy because I couldn’t get enough.

That’s it!

Simple. Healthy. Flavorful.

Thanks Trader Joe’s!
