  • ¼ teaspoon coarse sea salt

  1. Over medium heat, warm oil in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, lemon juice and zest, and salt.
  2. Whisk in the egg yolks and cream until smooth and return to heat stirring constantly until the mixture is thick enough to cling to the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. Do not allow the mixture to boil.
