I did have a craving for Caesar salad when I woke up this morning. I don't know whether it was a craving for the anchovy/fishy thing or the strong garlic flavor in the dish.
But it all started off with this:
I coddled the eggs by boiling some water and then gently placing two eggs in the pot ( I always have one for a backup) - take them off the heat and let them sit for one minute.
Then I filled the pot with cold water and assembled the rest of the dressing.
The garlic, anchovies, salt, pepper, olive oil and Parmesan went into a bowl. I peeled one of the eggs and scooped out the still runny yolk. I whisked all together in a bowl.
Then I tossed in the romaine and blended everything together with my fingers. It works best that way.
Then a little grated Parmesan.
And some black pepper.
