DIRECTIONS

  • * to coddle the eggs, place whole egg (in the shell) into simmering water for 1 minute then remove and chill under cold running water. This is to make sure you have no salmonella in your yolk. You could use pasturized eggs, I suppose.
  • Place the garlic (finely chopped), egg yolks and dijon into a stainless steel bowl and whisk together.
  • whisk in the lemon juice.
  • in a slow stream, add in the olive oil, whisking constantly until it is fully incorporated. This will thicken as it is whisked, so add a bit of water along the way if it gets too thick.
  • Season with salt.
  • Stir in the basil (very finely chopped).
