Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 cup white wine
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1 TBSP finely diced shallot
    1 TBSP unsalted butter


Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat. Reduce heat, add wine and lemon juice and simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes. Add diced shallot and simmer another 5 minutes uncovered, until sauce begins to reduce. Serve hot over pasta, rice or poultry.

If the flavor is too intense, or you want to stretch the sauce a bit, you can add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of water (depending on your taste) to the wine and lemon juice before simmering.

This is a base sauce which does well on its own. You can add other items, however, to alter or intensify the flavor. Optional ingredients include capers, tarragon or dill. Mix and match fresh herbs until you get the flavor you like; simmer uncovered until the reduction meets the intensity you require.
