Cut the eels into 2 inch lengths.

Bring to a simmer, cover the pan and cook slowly for 6 to 8 minutes or until the eels are just tender.
Remove the eels to a glass serving dish.
Stir a little of the hot liquid into the egg yolks.
Pour the egg yolk mixture and the lemon juice into the liquid in the skillet and stir with a wire whisk over very low heat until slightly thickened.
Do not allow the mixture to boil.
Pour the sauce over the eels and place in the refrigerator.
