Perfect with fish or shellfish.
If you're using salted or semi-salted butter, be sparing when seasoning with salt.
Use white pepper so that your sauce is not flecked with black spots.
If desired, you can add 125 ml (1/2 cup) cream: reduce it by half before incorporating the butter.
- In a saucepan, combine the white wine and juice of two lemons.
- Bring to a boil and reduce by half.
- Whisk in the cold butter a piece at a time.
- Season with salt and white pepper.
