306 - Number One Mom!
In preparation for a Mother's Day brunch extravaganza, a dollop of dill mayonnaise is the perfect topping for our entree of choice: Chilled Poached Salmon.
This meal sure does save some time as you can prepare it a few hours before your guests arrive. It is important to keep in mind that the trick to making a really good mayonnaise is to take your time. Here's our recipe for a 'dill-icious' mayonnaise that Mom won't soon forget.
- 2 egg yolks
- ¼ tsp dry mustard
- ¼ tsp salt
- juice of ¼ lemon
- ¼ tsp sugar
- ½ cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 ½ tbsp vinegar
- ¼ cup chopped dill
Blend egg yolks using a hand mixer until lemon coloured. Add in mustard, salt, ½ tsp lemon juice and sugar. Continue to blend, adding olive oil, ½ tsp at a time. *Do this very slowly.
In a separate mixing bowl, add remaining lemon juice and vinegar. Pour ½ cup sesame oil into another bowl. Add ingredients of each bowl, alternating, a few drops at a time. Once all of the ingredients are mixed, fold in the dill, and refrigerate until served.
*Remember to always keep mayonnaise refrigerated.
