The DVD edition of
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring


This is an authentic sauce to serve with all kinds of fried or grilled fish.
2 hard-boiled eggs, shelled
1 large egg yolk
10ml / 2 tsp lemon juice
175ml / 6 fl oz/ 3/4 cup olive oil
5ml / 1 tsp each of chopped capers, gherkin,
fresh chives, fresh parsley
salt and freshly ground black pepper

1.  Halve the hard-boiled eggs, remove the yolks and press them through a sieve into a bowl. Reserve the whites.

2.  Blend in the raw egg yolk and mix until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice.

3.  Add the oil very slowly, a little at a time, whisking constantly. When it begins to thicken, add the oil more quickly to form an emulsion.

4.  Finely chop 1 egg white and stir into the sauce with the capers, gherkins and herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with fish.
