The topping puffs up slightly to a golden brown. It's a perfect topping for a mild fish. I never had good luck cooking under a broiler, so I wrapped the fish in foil and baked at 400 degrees for about 15 mins. Then I carefully transferred the filets to a foil-covered baking sheet, topped with the egg mixture and broiled about 5 mins. Don't prepare the topping too far in advance, it becomes watery.
- Place the egg yolks in a food processor or blender. Blend in the salt and pepper. Pour the oil through the funnel in a thin, steady stream with the machine running. Add in the lemon juice. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold in the yolk mixture. Broil the fish about 2 inches from the heat source for about 6-10 mins, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Spead the sauce over the fillets and broil 3-5 minutes longer or until the sauce puffs and browns lightly.
