White Wine Sauce


34 people made this

A delicious sauce that is a perfect accompaniment to either a grilled or baked white meat or chicken. For a subtle flavour change, try a different herb to the suggested tarragon; or add a little cream to cut down on the acidity and give the sauce a full richness.


Serves: 4 

  • 50g butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons eschalots, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) white wine
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and eschalots; cook and stir until transparent, about 3 minutes. Season with tarragon, salt and white pepper.
  2. Increase the heat to medium and stir in the white wine and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer then whisk for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and sprinkle in parsley. Pour over your favourite white fish before serving.
