French Cuisine: Beignets de Sole au Parmesan & Mayonnaise verte/Sole fritters with Parmegiano and Green Mayonnaise

SOLE-VERTE

A lot of people have this cringe/hate about mayonnaise.
Why?
Because they usually eat redy-made, meaning a sweet and cloy product akin to fast/junk food.
Make it yourself then! I can assure you your world will change (alright, I’m exagerating!LOL)!

  3. I can’t stand the slop that masquerades as mayonnaise in Japan. It is much more like the salad cream that I also hated back in the UK.
    Thanks for the recipe, and long live true mayonnaise.
