  • Juice of 1 pink grapefruit and its zest
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 250g butter
  • 3 tablespoonfuls water
  • 2 pinches of salt Ground pepper


Step 1. Grapefruit Hollandaise Sauce

  1. Melt the pieces of butter in a microwave or bain-marie.

  5. Add the rest of the grapefruit juice and stir.

Step 2. Poached Egg

  4. After 3 min, strain the eggs with the skimmer and put them into freezing water for a few moments.
