Fish Sauce Beurre Blanc

Fish Sauce Beurre Blanc is very easy to make, and it is deli­cious! The “sauce beurre blanc” is a del­i­cate com­bi­na­tion of fla­vors. But­ter and cream per­fect­ly bal­ance off the shal­lot, lemon, and white wine. The sauce goes extreme­ly well with white fish such as tilapia and cod. And it only takes 5 min­utes to make!

Recipe

French recipe here. I am using light sour cream instead of the French “crème fraiche” as it is much eas­i­er to find in the US and gives a sim­i­lar result.

I like to cook the fish in my food steam­er. If you don’t have a steam­er, you can bake the fish in the oven.

Any white fish will work for this recipe. Also, you do not need an expen­sive wine, any white wine will work. I used Chardon­nay.

Instruc­tions
  1. Cook the fish. I place it in my food steam­er for 25 min­utes. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can bake the fish in the oven.
  2. While the fish is cook­ing, mince the shal­lot. Note: make sure you remove the skin of the shal­lot before you mince it.
  3. About 5 min­utes before your fish is ready, place your shal­lot with the juice of 1/2 of a lemon and 1/2 cup of white wine in a skil­let on low heat. Stir and cov­er for 5 min­utes.
  4. Uncov­er. Add the but­ter cut in small pieces, and stir. Allow the but­ter to melt.
