Savoury White Wine Sauce

Quick post!  This simple sauce goes well with seafood – obviously, as pictured, it also goes with beef too!  It is hard to find recipe’s for scallops that are Dukan Diet worthy.  Most of the ways to enjoy a scallop dish also include breadcrumbs, flour or a lot of butter.  Not that there is anything wrong with butter!  I searched for a while before finding this one, the sauce would go well on any white fish I think and although it has wine in it, I think it’s not enough to ruin the diet.  Maybe plan this topper for a celebration meal or at least, save it for a once-in-a-while treat.   Cathy Lowe presented this, I found it of course on the Food Network.

Messy Ingredients:

  • 1 TBS unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup fine-chop shallot
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 TBS white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (I used fat-free half-and-half)
  • 1 TBS fine chop parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter over medium heat and saute the shallots for two minutes.  Stir in the wine and vinegar and bring to a simmer.  Cook until the liquid begins to thicken and then stir in the cream.  Simmer for 4 minutes before adding the parsley salt and pepper.
