Aioli is a lovely fragrant and pungent type of mayonnaise – and the great thing is that you can take the flavour in any direction – try adding some pounded or chopped basil, fennel tops, dill or roasted nuts. It's also great flavoured with lemon zest and juice. It's normally seasoned well and is used to enhance things like fish stew in order to give it a real kick. You might wonder why I suggest using two types of olive oil to make this. By blending a strong peppery one with a mellower one, you can achieve a lovely rounded flavour.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
