don't make this often but I love it when I do. In this particular
video I used frozen egg yolks as a test. You'd make it the
same with fresh egg yolks you just don't add the water I used
to thin them out in the beginning of the video.
4 egg yolks (if using frozen, add a little water to thin then and
make them workable)
tblsp fresh lemon juice (more if you like it lemony)
shots of a Tabasco or Tapatio type sauce, or a pinch of cayenne
Unsalted Butter - Depending on how rich you want it, use 1/2 cup
to 1 cup melted butter OR 1 to 2 sticks butter cut into small cubes
follow the instructions in the video! the most important thing
is warm and thicken, not cook the egg yolks. You'll see I
don't use a bain marie (water bath) I just use
control the heat buy moving the bowl on and off the burner
and by whipping constantly. You can use one if you want but
it takes a little longer than
what is shown.
