Yield: about 4 Cups


1 C dry white wine
3 lemons, peeled and quartered
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp minced shallots
1 tsp salt
3 turns freshly ground black pepper
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 dash hot pepper sauce
½C heavy cream
½ lb unsalted butter, cut up, at room temp.
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. Heat a large non-reactive skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the wine, lemons, garlic, and shallots. Cook for 3 minutes, breaking up and mashing the lemons with a wire whisk. Stir in the salt, pepper , Worcestershire, and hot sauce and cook until the mixture is somewhat syrupy, for about 3 minutes. Stir in the cream and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Over low heat, whisk in the butter a few pats at a time. When all of the butter has been added, remove from the heat, but continue whisking until all of the butter is incorporated into the sauce.
  3. Strain the sauce, pressing all of the liquid into a bowl. Stir in the parsley. Serve immediately, or keep warm for a few minutes until ready to use.
