Olive Oil Hollandaise

Ingredients

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict
Ingredients for 8 servings

Yields 1 cup; 2 tablespoons = 1 serving
  • 3 egg yolks
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons hot water
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
Steps
  1. To a food processor (or blender), add egg yolks, hot water and lemon juice.  Pulse blend for a few seconds until somewhat slushy.
  2. Set the food processor on a constant speed, then slowly pour in olive oil as it mixes.  As the sauce forms/thickens, add a generous pinch of sea salt and the measured smoked paprika.  Stop the food processor once you have reached your desired level of consistency as some may like it thicker/thinner than others. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper using a spatula.
  3. Set aside.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
