In a saucepan we put some water to prepare the bain-marie.
We put a bowl on top of the saucepan where we mount the egg yolks, water a little reduction and a pinch of salt.
We continue to whip to obtain a frothy mixture, remembering to keep the heat moderate so as not to cook the eggs.
We gradually add the clarified butter.
