Cooks Tips

- For a milder olive oil flavoured aioli, use half virgin or extra virgin olive oil and half rice bran or canola oil. - Fresh garlic gives the aioli a fresh flavour. In a hurry, use 1-2 teaspoons prepared minced garlic. - Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes before using, this prevents them from burning during cooking.
