Grilled Merguez with Cumin Aioli and Pickled Carrots

Serves 6

2 pounds merguez sausage

6 tablespoons of cumin aioli

1 cup pickled carrots

Cut the baguette into 6 pieces and cut inhalf lengthwise but do not cut all the way through

Cut the merguez into 6 pieces and place on warm grill for about 8 minutes turning often. Once cooked through remove and place aside. Spread the aioli inside the sliced baguette, add sausage and top with pickled carrots.

Pickled carrots

2 large carrots, julienned

1 large white onion (sliced)

1 cup water

1 cup white vinegar

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

Julienne the carrots and place in a bowl along with sliced onions. In a medium saucepot, add water, vinegar, salt, sugar and peppercorns. Bring to a boil. Pour liquid over carrots and onions and cover the bowl in plastic wrap. For best results, store in the refrigerator for 24 hours before using.

Cumin aioli

1 cup mayo

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons roasted garlic

1/2 cup white onion (chopped)

2 sprigs of thyme

1/2 cup olive oil

4 tablespoons ground cumin

In a saucepan, sauté onions in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add cumin and cook for about 40 seconds to toast the spice. Add the remaining olive oil and thyme and cook for about 5 minutes stirring often. Strain the oil and discard the onion and spices. In a mixing bowl add the mayo, Dijon and roasted garlic. Mix together, slowly whisking in the cumin oil. Season with salt and pepper.
