Malt Vinegar Aioli

This malt vinegar aioli is absolutely yummy. I made a batch and served it as a dipping sauce for tater tots and fries. What a great change from ketchup! That wonderful malt vinegar flavor, tamed just enough by the tarragon and garlic. All in a great creamy sauce. Anywhere you can possibly think of using malt vinegar, use this aioli instead.

Malt Vinegar AioliThis aioli is also absolutely amazing for dipping deep fried fish filets (like my awesome copycat Long John Silver’s fish filets), or just slather it on some crab cake sliders. Oddly enough, as a kid my favorite thing about going to Long John Silver’s was the malt vinegar. I could drown a piece of fish in that stuff. I consider this malt vinegar aioili to be the grown-up version (and hey, it does have malt vinegar in it!).
