Mix the egg yolks with the lemon juice in a microwavable bowl stirring well. Then using a whisk slowly drizzle in the hot melted butter whisking constantly. Place the bowl in the
microwave and heat the mixture for 15 seconds on high, then whisk well, then repeat for a further 2 times. The mixture will have thickened, keep whisking and add the mayonnaise and cream. Adjust the seasoning and serve with freshly cooked asparagus spears.
