If there’s one classic sauce emblematic of French country cuisine, it’s simple beurre blanc, a flavorful cream-based sauce of shallots, butter, and vinegar, seasoned with white pepper. This perfectly white sauce (the shallots are strained off) is given a citrusy twist with the addition of lemon juice and candied lemon zest, for a fresh, zesty sauce that’s perfect to add to fish or poultry.
This line of sauces is designed in France to supply the busy home chef with high-quality French sauces that taste and feel like they were made from scratch in your own kitchen. Maison Poitier uses fresh cream, fresh lemons and premium butter, the entire process is supervised by their French chefs. The sauce is velvety and rich, zesty, and flavorful, and super practical!
Heat the sauce in the microwave or on the stove – each pouch serves 2 - then drizzle over a a baked fish dish, potatoes, steak frites, or roasted chicken. Keeps in the pantry with no refrigeration, so feel free to stock up on these and whip them out when you need to add gourmet flavor to a dish.
