Lemon Butter Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

Wonderful with any fish--bland or strong. Put it into a sauce dish on the table and help yourself. It goes really well with salmon cakes and salmon loaf. Sometimes simple is the best!

We didn't care for this much at all; it was far too thick (like a paste) and very sweet. I added quite a bit more water to thin it out and make it more sauce-like. I will try to make it again, but I'll use far less sugar and flour and maybe add some herbs and pepper. I think it could be a good base, but it just needs some tweaking.
