Meanwhile prepare the aioli: Place the yolk, garlic, lemon juice and seasoning into a blender. Blitz together until well combined, then slowly add the oil through the funnel blending all the while until light in colour and thickened. Set aside.

Heat a pot of oil. When oil is hot enough, fry the goujons until golden and crispy – should take 4 minutes. Place on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
