Pipis avgolemeno


You'll need

1 onion, thinly sliced 2 fresh bay leaves 2 kg pipis, soaked in cold water to remove sandy grit 2 egg yolks 2 lemons, juice only To serve: lemon halves, mesclun salad and bread   Gremolata 1 cup finely chopped (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 1 garlic clove, finely grated

Method

  • 01
  • For gremolata, combine all ingredients in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until required.

Remove pipis using a slotted spoon, then strain liquid through a fine sieve (discard solids) into a large saucepan, season liberally to taste and bring back to the boil.
