- In a large, steel mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water, or in a double boiler over a very low flame, whisk together the yolks, half of the lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon cold water.

- Whisk vigorously until the yolks attain a lemon-yellow color and become thick (about the consistency of creamy salad dressing).

- Be careful not to let the eggs cook into lumps — keep whisking all the time, and remove the bowl from the heat if it starts getting too hot.

- Once yolks are ready, set the bowl they are in onto a damp towel on a firm surface.

- Whisk in a few drops of cold water, then a few drops of the melted butter.

- Gradually whip in the melted butter in small increments, making sure that each addition is thoroughly incorporated before  adding any more.

- Season with cayenne, salt, and remaining lemon juice.

- Steam the asparagus for 5 minutes, until tender but still brightly colored. Divide onto plates; spoon hollandaise over the middle of the stalks.
