Servings: 4



  • In a small skillet, add the shallots, vinegar, pepper and 1 TBSP tarragon leaves and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and place in a metal mixing bowl. Allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, fill a small saucepan with an inch or two of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • To the cooled shallot mixture, add the egg yolks and 1 TBSP water. Whisk to combine.
  • Place the metal bowl over the saucepan of boiling water and turn the heat down to low. Keep an eye to be sure the bowl isn’t touching the boiling water.
  • Whisk the egg-shallot mixture until it begins to thicken, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in the butter, a splash at a time. Continue whisking until the sauce has emulsified.
  • Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and remaining 1 tsp. tarragon leaves. Season with salt, to taste. Serve.


Sauce cannot be reheated. 
However, it can be held at temperature in a sous vide water bath at 130 degrees for up to 4 hours. Add the sauce to a mason jar and place it in the bath.
