asparagus with hollandaise
homemade hollandaise using this recipe:
Whisk the egg yolks, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper together with a wire whisk in a medium-sized saucepan.
Add the pieces of butter and turn the stove to a medium heat.
As the butter melts into the egg yolk mixture, whisk continuously.
Once the butter has melted, continue to whisk the mixture until all the ingredients have blended together and the sauce begins to thicken.
Check the seasoning and then serve immediately.
this worked surprisingly well, given that the recipe is MUCH simpler than an ordinary hollandaise. the sauce was great in the pan, but when I poured it over the asparagus, it separated.
