Cilantro Lime Mayonnaise with shrimp,oysters and fish

OK we just love cilantro. With that said, the other day when we were in town we did a bad thing and went threw a drive Thur as we were starving and it was another 45 min to an hour home. So we whipped into a place we have not been to in I guess about 4 years. Bugger King.
(One of the bad things about a new HD TV is all the food commercials just kill us especially the Olive garden and there is no were to go to get even a Burger unless you drive 16 miles)
On their menu was a limited time only a fish sandwich with cilantro lime mayo. Needles to say we got one and it was delicious and of course our next thought was we can make this at home!
So we turned to our trusty computer and found this one by epicurious. We were going to have our Seafood night with this. We are also thinking of salmon burgers with this at another date.
We use the Zatarains fish fry as our batter for our catfish, and the shrimp, oysters and we also did some cauliflower with it.
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 garlic peeled
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Blend all first 5 ingredients in processor until cilantro is finely chopped up. Add mayo and process to just blend. Season with salt and pepper cover and chill. Should keep up to one month. That's if it last that long.
