Comments: "Aioli" is the name of a dish of hot boiled fish and vegetables served with a garlic mayonnaise. All white-meat fish may be used. In Provence, no aioli is considered complete if it does not include boiled snails (without shells).
In the northern part of France, "aioli" has taken the meaning of garlic mayonnaise only, and is served much as plain mayonnaise, with cold fish, meat, or vegetables.
