Fetuccine With Lemon Butter Sauce

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh chanterelles, rinsed and sliced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound fettuccine
  • 1 teaspoon Creole Seasoning (or to taste)
  • Lemon butter sauce: 1 cup dry white wine, 3 lemons, peeled and quartered, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 tablespoon minced shallots, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1 dash Worcestershire sauce, 1 dash hot sauce, 1/2 cup heavy cr

Directions

  • Heat a large non-reactive skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the wine, lemons, garlic and shallots. Cook for 3 minutes, breaking up and mashing the lemons with a wire whisk. Stir in the salt, pepper, Worcestershire and hot sauce and cook until the mixture is somewhat syrupy, for about 3 minutes. Stir in the cream and cook for 1 minute. Over low heat, whisk in the butter a few pieces at a time. When all of the butter has been added, remove from the heat, but continue whisking until all of the butter is incorporated into the sauce. Strain the sauce, pressing all of the liquid into a bowl. Stir in the parsley. Serve immediately or keep warm for a few minutes until ready to serve. Serve with steamed asparagus.
