Used the excellent foodwishes one bowl over a direct flame technique for making hollandaise sauce and worked very well.
Ingredients for 2 portions (this can be scaled-up to how ever much you need):
- 1 large egg yolk
- 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed- basically 60gms of butter for each egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (you can always add more to taste)
- salt and cayenne or hot sauce to taste
NOTE: If sauce gets too thick, just thin with a little hot water.
