2 egg yolks
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp white wine vinegar
200mL vegetable oil

2 ripe avocados, sliced
1 golden shallot, finely sliced
1 tsp baby capers
18 sweet basil leaves
1 cup rocket leaves, washed
18 thin slices Parmesan

Preheat oven to 180 C.

Aioli:

Put the egg yolks, mustard and vinegar in a small stainless steel bowl. Whisk slowly while adding the vegetable oil in a slow stream until incorporated.
