Melt the butter in a pan and, once foaming, add the flour and cook for 2 minutes while stirring. Slowly add the single cream, stirring all the time, until you have a smooth sauce.
Put the egg yolk into a bowl and lightly whisk. Pour over 1 /3 of the sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour in the remaining sauce, then tip back into the pan. Cook gently, stirring regularly, until it thickly coats the back of a spoon. Add the cayenne pepper, nutmeg, brandy, lemon juice and some seasoning.
Stir in the shrimps to warm for a few minutes, then pile on to sourdough toast, sprinkle with a little extra cayenne and serve with a dressed salad, if you like.
