Yield: makes 1 cup
Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • Juice of 1 lemon (2 Tbsp.)
  • 4 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 14 tsp. fine sea salt or kosher salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 34 cup canola oil
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 12 tsp. garlic flakes
  • 14 tsp. smoked sweet Spanish paprika (pimentón), or to taste

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice, mustard, salt, and egg yolks. Slowly beat in the canola oil, in drops at first, then in a stream, whisking continuously to form an emulsion (the mixture will eventually be similar in texture to a mayonnaise). Whisk in the buttermilk, parsley, garlic flakes, and paprika. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Before serving, taste and adjust the seasoning again if necessary.
