Keto Lemon Garlic Aioli as shown with padron peppers. An aioli, as I know it, pretty much always has garlic in it and by garlic I mean GARLIC and served as an appetizer with padron peppers? Yikes, so good. Not too long ago chef Taffiny Elrod from NY, a twitter friend, became a real-life friend when she came to visit Portland for a food conference.
We ate at the spectacular restaurant OX and one of the appetizers we had was padron peppers in some to-die-for sauce. I have always loved padrons just blistered and drenched in olive oil and lots of salt but as you can see and may find out that the addition of the keto lemon garlic aioli with the padrons are simply to die for. Blistered padron peppers have what I consider a very mild heat but…every once in a while you might get a zinger.
