None
Yield:
24 bites with about 1 cup/250 ml sauce
Level:
None

Ingredients

  • 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons grainy Dijon mustard
  • About 1 cup/250 ml grapeseed, vegetable, canola, or peanut oil
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Pinch white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, for frying
  • 24 shrimp, peeled, but with tail intact

Directions

Whisk together the egg yolk, salt, mustard, and vinegar in a roomy bowl. To add the oil, start whisking the yolk mixture and let the oil fall from the spout, drop by drop, until you have achieved a thick, velvety mayonnaise. Taste it. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper until the balance is to your liking.

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Fry the shrimp until just cooked through and still juicy. Arrange the shrimp on a platter with the mayonnaise in a dish alongside, for dipping.
