3 garlic cloves, peeled and grated on the finest holes of your grater
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large pasteurized egg yolks, at room temperature
1/2 cup pure olive oil
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
Poached shrimp, hard-cooked eggs, boiled new potatoes, green beans, okra, and beets
How to Make It
Stir together 2 tsp. warm water and crumbled saffron threads.
Drape a kitchen towel over a small saucepan, and set a small metal bowl over it. Mash garlic and salt together in bowl; whisk in yolks and saffron mixture. Add oil, 1 tsp. at a time, whisking constantly. Add extra virgin olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly. (If mixture gets too stiff, add more water.) Stir in dried crushed red pepper. Serve with shrimp, eggs, and vegetables.
