I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Lemon Butter Sauce
...in your mind.

Lemon Butter Sauce

Really... do you need to hear anything more than just lemon & butter? I think not – though if you did, shallots & parsley would do it. This simple little sauce will bring any piece of fish to life.

Makes about 1/3 cup


  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley


  1. Warm a small pan over medium heat and add lemon juice and shallot
  2. Cook until reduced by approximately 1/2, then add butter
  3. Slowly swirl butter into the mixture until thickened, season with salt to taste (be careful if using salted butter) and add parsley
  4. Stir to mix and serve
