DIRECTIONS

  • Place the butter in a preheated suacepan and melt the butter down (on low heat).
  • Once the butter is melted down add the plain flour.
  • Stir well and cook the mixture of butter and plain flour which should go a bit lumpy and dry at this stage.
  • Very important that you cook this well (2-4 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and slowly, very slowly add the milk and stir in.
  • The sauce should now be getting smooth.
  • If it is lumpy you have been adding the milk to fast.
  • Keep adding the milk until the desired thickness is achieved.
  • Add the paprika for a bit of extra kick.
  • Any other herbs or things like lemons can be added for a bit of extra taste.
  • This sauce is used in my fish and white sauce and my tuna mornay recipes as well so look for them.
