Lemon and Garlic Butter Sauce
Here’s a quick recipe for you all! It is called my Lemon and Garlic Butter Sauce!
Here’s a quick recipe for you all! It is called my Lemon and Garlic Butter Sauce. I’ve based the recipe around the traditional Beurre Blanc sauce, which is a white butter sauce. It is a very quick and fuss free sauce to make. The consistency should be runny, but thick enough to cling to the food with a light coating. It is a great sauce to serve with fish and seafood, chicken, and pork. You could also use it to drizzle over pasta!
This recipe will make about 1/2 a cup in quantity. You may not think that is much sauce, however, it is extremely rich because of the butter and cream, and you should only use a little of the sauce when serving. Just enough to add a hint of flavour to your dish.
It is very quick and easy to make, so give it a go and enjoy our Lemon and Garlic Butter Sauce.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1/2 cup
1/2 cup or 110 ml dry white wine
1/4 cup or 55 ml heavy or double cream
2 Tablespoons butter, chilled
1 lemon, juice only
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh (or dry) dill
Salt and white pepper to taste
1/4 cup Finely chopped shallots
1. In a small saucepan, add a small drop of olive oil and the minced garlic (and shallots if using). Cook on a low heat until soft. Then add the white wine, increase the heat to medium and let it cook for about 4 minutes until reduced by approximately 1/3 .
2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter, stir to combine, then add the cream. Return the pan to the heat and stir until it begins to bubble. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice and dill. Stir, taste the sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. And there you have our Lemon and Garlic Butter Sauce!
** If using shallots, it is common to sieve the sauce before serving so as to remove the shallots and give you a nice smooth sauce. You don’t have to do this, if it doesn’t bother you!
