Lemon, Butter, And Tomato Sauce

  • Yield: 1 3/4 cups


  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped, peeled, and seeded tomatoes, or 1/4 cup chopped canned tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick (1/4 pound) butter, cut into 1/2-inch chips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  • In a saucepan, combine the onions, lemon juice, tomatoes, salt, cayenne, garlic, and wine over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 12 minutes.
  • Add the cream and simmer for about 4 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Stirring constantly, add half of the butter, a little at a time. Remove from the heat and, stirring constantly, add the remaining butter. Add the parsley. Serve immediately.
