Dijon Mayonnaise

Over the last nine months TG has talked a lot about a couple of my favorite authors (Karen Adler and Judith M. Fertig).

Their book Fish and Shellfish, Grilled and Smoked is my “holy grail” for seafood to which I refer all the time.



Last night I bought a beautiful piece of tuna, but I wasn’t sure what sauce might go well with it. Turning to the “holy grail” I found a Dijon Mayonnaise recipe that TLW made up, since she follows directions better than I do! It was simple to make and we had all the ingredients
since i didn’t want to go to the da** store yet again.



Dijon Mayonnaise

1 cup mayonnaise (Hellman’s or Duke’s)

2 T dijon mustard

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 t fresh lemon juice


Mix all ingredients together. Voila!


The tuna (which I grilled over direct heat in a fish basket to 130*) and the sauce were dynamite together!


I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys seafood! The flavored mayo recipes are on p. 309.
