Champagne Leek and Lemon Cream

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

I found this recipe on another site and decided to post it here because it's just so simple and tasty! We like to use this with a nice Australian Barramundi, but it's good with most white fish. It's the only fish dish that makes my husband lick his plate. Measurements are in American cups.

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat.

  3. Add champagne and reduce until 2-3 tablespoons remain.
  4. Add lemon juice and cook until liquid evaporates.
  5. Add cream and simmer until slightly reduced.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Garnish with fresh dill.

I made this to drizzle over a crab stuffed flounder... one of my favorite dishes. I usually make a hollandaise sauce for stuffed flounder and drizzle it over the fish and a side of steamed asparagus. I'm thinking I was wrong about the hollandaise... this sauce was VERY tasty! I think with tarragon instead of dill this would be very delicious over grilled or broiled seasoned chicken breasts... hmmmm.
