2 salmon fillets with skin on
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Lemon Hollandaise Sauce
4 egg yolks
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Skim any froth from the surface and discard.
Leave to cool. Whisk the yolks and 2 tablespoons of water in a separate saucepan for 30 seconds,
or until pale and foamy. Place the saucepan over very low heat and whisk the egg mixture for 2-3 mins,
or until frothy and the whisk leaves a trail behind it as you whisk.
Don’t let the saucepan get too hot or you will scramble the effs.
Remove from the heat.
2. Whisk the cooled butter into the eggs, a little at a time, whisking well after each addition.
Avoid using the milky butter whey from the base of the saucepan.
Stir in the lemon juice and season with salt and cracked black pepper.
3. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and rub the fillets with the olive oil.
Heat the non-stick pan over high heat and cook the salmon fillets skin-side-down for 4 mins.
Turn over and cook for another 2 mins, or until cooked to your liking.
Serve with the sauce and vegetables of your choice.
4. Salmon fillets with lemon hollandaise sauce. DONE! (:
Tip : Hollandaise sauce should be cook in a heavy-based saucepan.
If the sauce separates or curdles, remove from the heat and whisk in an ice cube.
