12  (192 g)
Prestige Frozen Egg Yolk
1 ½ Cup. (342 g)
Unsalted Butter, melted
3 Tbsp. (15 ml)
Lemon Juice
1 tsp.


  1. Set a saucepan on the stove with 1” (2.5cm) of water and bring to a simmer.
  2. In a stainless steel bowl, slowly whisk the portioned egg yolks with 4 Tbsp. tepid water and the lemon juice. Once combined, vigorously whisk for 30 seconds until thick and frothy.
  3. Set the bowl over the water and ensure it is barely simmering. Continue to continually whisk the yolks, so they don’t get too hot and scramble. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened, light and doubled in volume. Whisk in salt. Remove from heat and place in a warm spot until ready to use.
  4. If the sauce gets too thick, add a few drops of warm water. Serve within 1 hour.

  • For Blender method, start at step 2, and run the blender on low to combine, then high to whip. With the blender running on medium, slowly pour in the melted butter through the top of the lid. Pause between each step to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add salt and give it 30 seconds on high speed to increase volume. Sauce will be thinner than hand whipped method.
