Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ŒC/fan 170ŒC/gas 5. Scatter the almonds onto a non-stick baking sheet and roast until golden. Leave to cool.
  2. Mix the oils in a jug. Place the egg yolks, garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice in a large bowl. Beat with an electric whisk while slowly adding the oil, until smooth and very thick.
  3. If it is too thick, whisk in a splash of boiling water from the kettle to make a slightly looser and very shiny mayonnaise. Stir in the almonds, then adjust the flavour with lemon juice and salt. Serve at room temperature, but chill until needed.
