For 4 generous helpings:
2 whole Red Pimentos from a tin, finely-chopped (or red peppers, char-grilled until black, then skinned and with their seeds discarded)
2 hard-boiled Egg Yolks, very-finely-chopped
3 egg yolks
a level teaspoon (3ml) Paprika
½ teaspoon (2ml) Tabasco Sauce
the grated rind of 1 Orange
200ml/7 fl oz Sunflower or Rapeseed Oil (olive is too strong)
1 dessertspoon (10ml) White Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Put the raw and hard-boiled egg yolks into a bowl and add the paprika, Tabasco and orange rind. Mix well together.
2. Gently beating all the time, slowly add the oil - bit by bit. Not adding more until the previous amount has been absorbed. You should end up with a thick ointment.
3. Add the vinegar and the finely-chopped pimentos and mix well in.
4. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Serve, or keep covered in a fridge.
(no dishes containing raw eggs should be held for long periods at room temperature, so discard any sauce if it has been 'over-exposed')
