Rob Evans is the Chef at Hugo's in Portland, Maine. This is the mayonnaise recipe used in his fabulous Tuna Melt sandwich, which I also posted on RecipeZaar. I will never make a tuna melt any other way again.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Lightly char rosemary (hold stems with tongs and rotate through burner flame for about 10 seconds), strip leaves, and finely chop (yields about 1 tbsp).
  2. Bring 4 cups water to boil, reduce to simmer, and add vinegar.
  3. Ease egg into water, cooking until whites set but yolk is still runny, about 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer egg (as dry as possible) to blender (or bowl of food processor) with lemon juice and Dijon mustard.
  5. Slowly add oils, processing until thick and creamy. Add rosemary. Makes about 1 cup.

Yum! We actually just used this for our lunch sandwiches on the weekend with a variety of meats and cheeses. We didn't use the tuna oil since we were using it for beef,chicken etc but it was WONDERFUL~!

With the chef's raves about her mayonnaise, I felt it necessary to use it in/on her recipe #287962, & both ARE a hit in my book! I even had my own fresh rosemary to use! Thanks for posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my invitees to AUS/NZ Recipe Swap, Mar 08]
