How To Make Lime and Galangal Butter Sauce


1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced galangal
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup butter, cut into 1 tablespoon sized pieces
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro


Place the garlic, shallot, galangal, and white wine in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and reduce the wine to 2 tablespoons. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the butter, one piece at a time, adding each piece after the last one has melted. Once the butter has been incorporated, whisk in the lime zest and juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in cilantro and serve immediately.
