For one serving use 1 egg.
Whisk yolk in bowl over hot but not boiling water. When egg gets hot but still runny, add 1-2 Tablespoons butter. Keep whisking.
When it starts to thicken, remove from heat and add a few squeezes of lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Douse your breakfast or veggies or salmon with it.
If it gets too thick, whisk in a bit of hot water.
