  • 30 ml Egg Yolk
  • 1 tsp Water
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt to taste
  • 120 g Butter
  • 1 unit Cayenne Pepper/Hot Sauce optional


  • Melt your butter in a small saucepan at high heat, making sure to swirl it constantly until the foaming stops.
  • Slide that butter into a 1 cup liquid measuring cup.
  • Placing the head of your hand blender at the bottom of the plastic cup, mix the egg yolk, water, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
  • While the hand blender is mixing the ingredients in the cup, slowly pour the hot butter into the cup. Keep that up until all the butter is gone.
  • Season to taste with kosher salt, and if you’re feeling like you want that extra something, add cayenne pepper or hot sauce.
  • Serve it immediately.
