Roasted Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce
1 bunch of asparagus
Place washed/dried asparagus in Flexipan Mold or Flexipan Tray of choice - for a side dish, I love using the Oval Mold, but for larger portions, I love using the Flexipat. Drizzle with olive oil and toss. Sprinkle with crushed sea salt and roast at 350 for approx. 10 min.
*Fresh sea salt is great crushed in our Mortar & Pestle!
For Hollandaise Sauce:
4 egg yolks
3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in our Demarle Difference Stainless Steel Petite Saucepan until the mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place the saucepan over low heat and continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful to not let the eggs get too hot, or you'll have scrambled eggs! Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat and whisk in cayenne and salt to taste. Set in a warm place until ready to use. If the sauce gets too thick, whisk in a few drops of water before serving.
*Please note that if you are not using our Demarle Difference Stainless line, then you will need to use a double boiler!
