I sauteed some garlic in the butter before adding the flour. I also added some dill weed. This was delicious on salmon cakes. This sauce is quick to make, but have all your ingredients out and ready to go. It thickens quickly once you add the flour and milk.
To satisfy a craving I made salmon patties with asparagus for dinner but something was missing. I needed a sauce that would go with both that was quick and didn't require searching the Earth for ingredients. I tried this recipe and it was fantastic. The best part is it can be made in the microwave. Thanks. I'll be back for more.
This sauce is great for salmon patties! I use the 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice, and then add a packet of True Lemon. I also add a bit of thyme, granulated garlic and just a pinch of oregano and basil. I use half&half instead of milk... and don't be afraid of the cayenne... it really makes the sauce! Delicious, and thanks for the post!
I loved the concept of this recipe. I added a garlic clove to the flour and butter mixture (maybe next time I will only use half) I also added some lemon pepper and black pepper as I didn't want it to be too lemony. I didn't measure my lemon juice I just squeezed half a lemon into it. Loved the cayenne pepper in this. I put this on a salmon steak. I cooked the salmon steak in the oven with butter garlic salt lemon pepper and cayenne pepper. It all turned out delicious. It was on my husbands plate a whole of 30 seconds!!
A great base for a sauce. I was looking for something to top our crabcakes and this sounded like the crabcake sauce we get at a favorite restaurant. I knew I just needed a couple additions and it was EXACTLY like the sauce we love. I used 1/2 cup 1% milk and 1/4 cup half and half. After bringing to boil, I put a big drop of yellow food color to give it a nice pale yellow tint. I did about 2 1/2 tbsp. of lemon (because that was the juice of a whole lemon). At the end, I stirred in about a handful of finely diced fresh red bell pepper and about a heaping tbsp. of capers. Not only did it taste great, the addition of the peppers, capers and food coloring made it look beautiful. Thanks for sharing! It made our crab cakes PERFECT!
Very good sauce. Both my husband and I loved it. I served it over salmon patties I made using the Oregon salmon patty recipe on this site. I added a little extra lemon juice since I used bottled juice. Needs a little color though. I used 2-3 drops yellow food coloring and it definetely gave it more eye appeal.
CopperPot, I think you read the recipe incorrectly. It is 4 teaspoons of flour, not 4 tablespoons. Also, any sauce made with flour should be cooked for a min. or two before adding other ingredients to help cook off the floury taste. Hope you'll try it again.
Meh. I found this sauce too floury tasting. I needed to add more cayenne than the recipe calls for in order to taste it. It was still pretty boring so I added some dill to give it more flavor. Maybe it would be better with some lemon zest.
