    Ethan UK's Note:

    I made this up mega-fast last night as a mustardy 'something' to serve on top of a huge piece of fresh grilled Haddock and I didn't want to use something out of a bottle. It was so good, and as a simple but very elegant pour-over sauce would be great for fish & poulty, and if a stronger-flavoured mustard & a little less lime were used it would be terrific on steak and, I expect, gammon and pork too - also some baked vegetable dishes. The spice list is quite long but it's basically just a Bechamel sauce with mustard, apple, lime and the spices listed here are simply the spices I had handy and fancied at the time and just a guide on how to prepare it exactly the same next time. I do believe spice & herb selection is very much down to what you fancy at the time :) It's a really handy recipe to make up quickly and is wonderfully sweet, creamy, mildly mustard and piquant plus it's extremely healthy. Makes a very generous quantity for one. A crisp, dry white wine or dry sherry would probably be much nicer than vinegar if you have it.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place corn starch and Dijon Mustard into good-sized microwaveable bowl and add a little of the milk.
    2. 2
      Stir to mix as much as you can. If you can get it lump free then great (I couldn't!) - if not then the lumps will resolve themselves in the cooking anyway, (well mine did!).
    3. 3
      Stir in the milk and the rest of the ingredients except the boiling water.
    4. 4
      Stir in a good half of the boiling water. Stir well.
    5. 5
      Cook in microwave on full power for a few minutes (3 to 4 depending on microwave power rating) until it's been bubbling merrily for a good 45 seconds.
    6. 6
      Take it out and give a good stir then stir in more boiling water until sauce is a just a bit thicker than you would like it to be.
    7. 7
      Microwave again until bubbling merrily.
    8. 8
      Just prior to serving, stir in a little more boiling water to dilute to desired consistency and. . . .
    9. 9
      Optional:.
    10. 10
      microwave for 30 seconds or so to bring it back to boiling hot.
    11. 11
      SERVE.
    12. 12
      Optional Garnish:.
    13. 13
      Drizzle a little fresh lemon juice across the top when it's on the plate and garnish with fresh ground black pepper or paprika and segments of lemon and/or chopped herb leaves such as Basil, Tarragon or Mint etc.
    14. 14
      I was so pleased with this I took a couple of pictures which I added to my website - in the (probably vain and arguably very mischievous) hope that I can persuade my mother that making up proper sauces really needn't take forever, have loads of butter, or even very much effort! :).
    15. 15
      It's surprisingly creamy (which was exactly what I wanted). If you'd like it with a little more bite then stir in a little Tabasco sauce and a few drops more lime juice.
