Serves: Approximately 1 cup
 
Ingredients
  • 2 large egg yolks*
  • ½ cup grapeseed or canola oil
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 small garlic cloves, finely grated
  • ½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt, plus more, to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Drape a kitchen towel over a small saucepan and set a small metal bowl over it (this will hold the bowl in place so you can whisk and pour at the same time). Whisk egg yolk*, garlic, ¼ tsp. salt, and 2 tsp. water in metal bowl to blend well.
  2. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in grapeseed oil, 1 teaspoonful at a time, until sauce is thickened and emulsified. Whisking constantly, add olive |oil in a slow, steady stream. Stir in cayenne, paprika and lemon juice, season with pepper, and more salt, to taste.
Notes
*Raw egg is not recommended for infants, the elderly, pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems. If you’re concerned, use pasteurized egg yolks instead.
