|14 tbsp. (198g)||Plugrá® Premium Butter, unsalted, and clarified to yield 5 oz.|
|3 large (51g)||egg yolks|
|1 tbsp. (14g)||lemon juice|
|½ tsp. (3g)||kosher salt|
|1/8 tsp. (1g)||hot sauce, optional|
Place egg yolks and lemon juice in a metal bowl or double boiler over simmering water. Whisk constantly until mixture is thick and creamy. If mixture becomes too thick, add a tablespoon or two of water to thin it out. Be careful not to scramble the eggs.
Whisk in the butter in a slow drizzle to form a thick emulsion. Thin with water if needed and season with additional salt and the hot sauce. Serve immediately.
