How To Make grilled tuna steak with basil aioli

    Basil Aioli Place the egg yolk, whole egg, lemon juice, Dijon, vinegar salt, and oil in a jar, or container, just large enough to fit the base of an immersion blender. Turn the immersion blender on high, and gently move the blender in an upward motion. As the emulsification process continues, the mixture will thicken. Continue until you've reached the desired consistency. Usually about 1 minute. Remove blender and set aside. Add the garlic and basil and use a spoon or fork to gently incorporate into the mayonnaise. Cover with lid and refrigerate until ready to use.
