Lemon Butter Sauce
This simple sauce is great on so many levels, with 3 ingredients in the basic sauce, and can be elevated by simply adding different herbs. It works as a dipping sauce for seafood or brush chicken with it before baking. It is so good and simple to make. Makes ¾ cup.
• ½ cup butter
• 3 Tbsp dresh lemon juice
• Dash of sea salt
1.In small saucepan, melt butter; stir in lemon juice and salt. It's fine as is, but I use my immersion blender as an emulsifier to give a creamier consistancy right nefore using.
2. Add 1 teaspoon dill if using with fish
½ teaspoon each oregano and thyme for chicken
½ teaspoon parsley for everything
• Easily doubled or tripled.
