Apparently you get lots of steamed vegetables (including a big potato; potato slathered with aioli!), the snails if you order them, so your plate starts to look like this:
Then you add a big piece of cabillaud, a firm white fish in the cod family.
If you can't get there, steam the fish yourself, grab a few snails from the garden, and pop a big potato in the oven. Here's an instant aioli.
Makes about 1 cup
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 cup bottled mayonnaise
Black pepper, to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
1. On a cutting board with the end of a blunt knife, mash the garlic and salt until they form a paste.
2. In a bowl, whisk the mayonnaise until smooth. Whisk in the garlic mixture, pepper, and lemon juice. Taste for seasoning and add more salt or pepper, if you like. Sheryl Julian
