Lemon Cream Sauce

This elegant Lemon Cream Sauce is rich and flavourful. A little goes a long way so don’t let the cream deter you!

This sauce is perfect for seafood, salmon, asparagus, rice – even pasta. Anywhere you want a burst of lemon.

I first served it with this Herb Crusted Salmon and Lemon Pistachio Rice.

Instructions
  1. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over high heat. Add shallot and cook 2 minutes. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Boil until it is reduced to about 1/2 cup. This may take 5-10 minutes depending on the size of your saucepan.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add the cream, sugar and salt. Stir to mix and then add the lemon juice and mustard. Simmer until it thickens enough to coat the back of your spoon. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  3. Allow the sauce to cool about 10 minutes. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  4. Serve warm over seafood or vegetables and rice as desired.
