Method

  1. Add the salt and garlic cloves to a large round mortar and smash the cloves into a smooth paste
  2. Add the lemon juice to the garlic paste
  3. Then, drop-by-drop, add the olive oil, crushing the paste, turning the mortar as you go
  4. Don't add the next drops of olive oil until the last have been completely amalgamated into the paste
  5. After about 20 minutes you should have a sauce the consistency of a very thick mayonnaise.
  6. If it is too thick, you can add a drop or two of water to thin it out

Chef's notes

Don't add the oil too quickly.
