Dill Sauce for Seafood
Yields approximately 3/4 cup
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
1 small shallot — finely chopped
2 teaspoons garlic — minced
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons fresh dill — coarsely chopped
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
In a saucepan, over medium heat, heat the oil with the shallot and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, about 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and whisk in the mustard, dill, and the pepper.
Cut the butter into small pieces, whisk into the sauce until incorporated, salt to taste. Spoon the sauce over seafood and garnish with additional dill.
