Easy Lemon Butter Sauce for Fish and Seafood

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Nif_H

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 an easy and delicious recipe. I omitted the Worcestershire. Not a fan of it. I served baked cod on a bed of angel hair pasta. Poured the sauce over fish. Everybody loved it. :)
