Instructions

Garlic Aioli

  1. Whisk egg yolk, garlic and salt in a mixing bowl to combine

  2. Mix in water, and while mixing constantly, add olive oil drop by drop as mixture emulsifies and thickens (adding oil too quickly will cause the mixture to break and separate)

  3. Whisk until oil is thoroughly combined, begin adding mayonnaise

  4. Once mayonnaise is incorporated, add in lemon juice, paprika, cayenne, old bay, and more salt to taste, if needed

  5. Continue whisking until aioli is thick enough to hold its shape when spooned

Spicy Shrimp Club

  1. Preheat oven to 525° / broil

  2. While oven is preheating, wash the shrimp and remove the tails

  3. Add shrimp to a large mixing bowl and add melted butter, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne, old bay, salt, pepper and combine until all shrimp are evenly coated

  4. Place shrimp 1-2 inches apart on a cookie sheet and broil on top rack for 2-3 minutes on each side

  5. While shrimp are cooking, begin toasting the sourdough and preparing the avocado, pickle and mixed greens

  6. Once shrimp are done and bread is toasted, begin building your club - aioli on both sides of the bread, mixed greens, shrimp, pickle, avocado

  7. Serve with fries / chips and enjoy!
