Ingredients                                                                  Quantity
Unsalted butter                                                                250g
Shallots, finely diced                                                       40g
Fish stock                                                                        500ml
Dry white sauce                                                              100ml
White wine vinegar                                                          50ml
Cream                                                                             150ml
Lemon juice                                                                    1tbs


1. Cut the butter into blocks about 1Cm cubed and place them under refrigeration to chill well.
2. Meanwhile, place the shallots, fish stock, wine and vinegar into a pan, bring to the boil and reduce the contents by two-thirds of the original volume.
3. Add the cream to the reduction and continue simmering to further reduce the mixture until it coats the back of a spoon. Squeeze a little lemon juice into the reduction.
4. Reduce the heat, Whisk in the cold blocks of butter vigorously, a few at a time until each batch has blended into the sauce. When half of the butter has been mixed into the sauce, remove the pan from the heat, but continue whisking in the butter. If the sauce starts to thicken too much, return to a low heat.
5. Keep this sauce in a warm place for a maximum of two hours before discarding due to bacterial growth. This sauce is suited to most varieties of poached and pan-fried seafood.
