- 2 Tb salted butter
- 2 Tb flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 tsp fresh dill, minced (or 1 tsp dried dill, if your like me and don’t use your dried dill from the seasoning rack very often please think about its taste. If this spice is old it will taste awful….so when in doubt use fresh dill)
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup whole milk
In a small heavy bottom sauce pan over low heat melt the butter. Whisk in everything except the milk, this is the flour, salt, pepper, dill and nutmeg. Increase your heat to medium and while whisking bring the mixture to a simmer and then continue to whisk and simmer for a couple of minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in the milk. Return to medium heat, continuing to whisk bring a boil and boil for 1 minute until thickened. Serve immediately.
Suggestions: This creamy bright & fresh tasting sauce is ideal for fish and chicken. Try it on your Salmon, Trout, Bass and Catfish. Want to spice it up a little? Add a dash of Cayenne Pepper.
