Healthy Sauce Recipe

This recipe is appropriate for a low calorie, low-carbohydrate diet regimen. It is delicious and easy to make with a stovetop skillet. If added to steamed vegetables it can be used for a lactovegetarian diet too. If added to fish as pictured above, it is perfect for pescatarians.

See below for additional nutritional information.

Serves 4


  • 1-2 shallots, chopped fine

  • 8 oz white wine

  • 2 oz lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp heavy cream

  • 4 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • Salt and white pepper, to taste


Combine shallots, white wine, and lemon juice in a saucepan over high heat and reduce to 2 tablespoons. Add the cream to the reduction. Once the liquid bubbles, reduce the heat to low. Add the butter, one cube at a time, whisking first on the heat and then off the heat. Continue whisking until the mixture is fully emulsified and reaches a rich sauce consistency. Season with salt and white pepper.
