The Original Maine Lobster Hollandaise Sauce

We yet again, have the pleasure of introducing you to a unique and original 'play' on a classic. By infusing our premium Lobster Juice (which we might add, cannot be found anywhere else in the world) into an already butter and lemon flavored sauce perfect for fish and seafood, you end up with our Maine gift to you! This special Hollandiase sauce is perfect for any type of seafood or fish and is easily transformed into a spread thick enough to slather on that fish burger or clam cake, simply by adding 1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream when it has cooled.

4 egg yolks

1/4 cup Bar Harbor®  Lobster Juice

1 stick butter (1/2 cup), cut into pats

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Large pinch cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon minced, Bar Harbor® Lobster Meat

15 half clam shells, optional

Add water to a large pot to come up 3 inches from bottom. Place over medium-low heat. In a metal bowl that snuggly fits into the pot without touching the water (or use any insert that fits so that the steam will not come up and burn you when the water boils) add the egg yolks, whisking well.

Add the lobster juice and continue whisking while water is boiling. Once mixture is very hot, slowly add one pat of butter at a time, whisking constantly. Let one pat completely melt before adding the next. When all the butter is used, cook an additional minute. It will have almost doubled in volume and be creamy and smooth.

Remove from heat, stir in the lemon juice and cayenne pepper and use warm. Refrigerate any leftover sauce, reheating over low heat to reuse.

Evenly divide Lobster Hollandaise Sauce among clean clam shells and top with a pinch of minced lobster meat. Or simply sprinkle minced lobster on top of sauce to serve in the bowl.
