Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped potatoes (about 1/2 of a small potato)
  • 1 very small onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice, to taste

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add almonds, potato, onion, garlic, and thyme. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and golden brown, about 6 minutes.
