Sorrel and Lemon Sauce

I love a good sauce. There is noting that I can think of that enhances a dish better.

Sometimes a sauce is the definition of the dish itself. Consider pasta sauce or how about a Marcela sauce. I can probably name a few more but I think you get the picture. The best thing about this kind of sauce is you can use a verity of meats such as chicken or veal etc.

The other day I was looking through this cook book called “Step by Step Sauces Dips and Salsas” and came across this recipe I want to share. I was cooking salmon this day and wanted to try something new besides a traditional cocktail sauce so I found this recipe.

Sorrel and Lemon Sauce:

Goes with fish or chicken

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Total cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves 4

1oz. sorrel leaves, stems removed (found in grocery stores) fresh basil works as well

3 egg yolks

5oz. butter, melted

3 tablespoons lemon juice

[if Put the sorrel in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 30 seconds. Drain and refresh in cold water to keep the color, then chop finely or tear into small pieces.

[if Put the egg yolks in a bowl and place over a pan of simmering water. Wisk the yolks for about one minute, or until they thicken.

[if Continue whisking and gradually drizzle the melted butter into the yolks, a little at a time, whisking after each addition, until sauce is thick and creamy. Remove the bowl from the heat. Whisk in the lemon juice and sorrel season to taste with salt and pepper.
