    Nif's Note:

    This is a traditional German sauce that is usually served over trout. You can dredge trout in flour and cook in butter in a pan. After you cook your trout in the pan, just make this in the same pan to get those flavours! You can absolutely use this on any seafood. Enjoy!

      This is a wonderfully tangy sauce that I used to accompany some broiled fish fillets. It made a very nice lunch. I think the lemon juice was a tad too much (though I admit that I didn't measure but just squeezed 1/2 a lemon, so it might have been more lemon than the recipe actually calls for). But next time, I will cut the lemon back to maybe 1 1/2 tablespoons so the worcestershire sauce is a bit more prominent. But otherwise, this was excellent and is something I'd be happy to serve to company. Thanks, Nif. Made for the Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens team while cooking for the Zaar World Tour #6.

      Very nice butter sauce. I broiled some fish fillets tonight and used this butter to baste it with. Also used it as a dipping sauce for the fish. Thanks for sharing....made for ZWT by an Unruly Under the Influence.
