Number of Servings: 2


    1 tsp olive oil
    2 tbsp shallots, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2c Vita Coco Coconut water
    1 pat of butter


The butter acts as a thickener and binds the sauce, but can be eliminated.

For extra coconut flavor, add 1 tsp shredded, unsweetened coconut after the water is added.


In a medium non-stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots and saute for 1 minute. Add garlic and saute until shallots are translucent and garlic is fragrant. Do not brown shallots or garlic.

Add coconut water and increase heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Remove from heat and swirl in pat of butter.
