Last night, I was in a rush to make dinner. I didn’t think I was going to have enough time. I had purchased a piece of Halibut on my way home from work and remembered once having an incredible butter sauce on a piece of fish. So I thought I would try it, but make it a lemon butter sauce. It took a total of ten minutes to make and it tasted so delicious, I was perfectly content and ready to run out door! This could become a staple.
Lemon Butter Sauce
1/3 Cup of Lemon Juice
4 Tablespoons of Butter
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Stock (or hot water)
In a sauce pan heat lemon juice until it has reduced to about 1 Tablespoon. Remove from heat and stir in 2 Tablespoons of Butter until fully melted and combined. Return to low heat and add stock and remaining butter and let come to simmer. Now ready to pour over fish. This will be enough for 2-3 pieces of Fish. This is perfect for any white fish.
Now that is a recipe I could even manage to do! And sounds delicious!
We just tried this tonight, but we did it a little differently. I extended the sauce with a little more stock and reduced it a little. Then I threw the pre-cooked fish (cod) in, stirred it up and threw the whole mess over spaghetti. It makes a fabulous sauce that will absolutely be a staple in our house. Thanks!
