Roasted Shrimp with Creamy Citrus Aioli

The quality of the extra virgin olive oil makes or breaks this aioli. Only use an olive oil that you truly love the taste of. if you aren't a fan of the taste,of the olive oil you have, simply use all canola oil. With regard to the garlic, I used one clove which I thought was sufficient. However, if you really love the flavor of garlic, use another clove!
