Wine, Butter and Capers Sauce for Fish

Rich sauce prepared from shallots cooked with white wine, butter and capers and seasoned with fresh chopped dill. It suits for any kind of fish whatever it is boiled, fried or grilled. Goes good with salmon (see Salmon with Capers and Dill Sauce recipe), cod, tilapia and other fish which you would usually serve with butter sauce of some kind.

If you are trying to get more liquid sauce use more wine or add more shallots otherwise. If you don’t like texture of cooked onions – increase shallots frying time and cook them with wine longer.

Ready sauce can be stored in the fridge, but it should be served warm, just make sure when you reheat it to remove sauce from burner before it starts boiling.

Ketchup and Mayonnaise Mix Sauce

This is the easiest recipe for simple cocktail sauce which makes a great addition to boiled shrimps, or fried meat or chicken main dishes. I even serve it as a side sauce for russian meat dumplings (pelmeni).

You can vary amount of each ingredient to taste: if you like ketchup taste more – add less mayonnaise; add more garlic if you want to make sauce more spicy; also fresh parsley can be replaced with cilantro.

Cream of Mushroom Sauce

Cream of Mushroom Sauce

I think that is one of the easiest cream sauces to do, but it is also a bit heavy due to usage of whipping cream as a main ingredient.

Personally I think the taste this sauce completely worth working out those extra calories later on. But it is for you to decide: try substitute cream with smaller amount of half & half to make it a bit lighter if you wish.

Cream of Mushroom Sauce is perfect addition for potato-based dishes: potato dumplings, potato pancakes or simply boiled potato; it will also benefit grilled or fried chicken meat or roast beef; as well as it can be served as a pasta sauce.

Tzatziki (can be spelled as tzadziki or tsatsiki) is yogurt and cucumber cold sauce of Greek cuisine.

It can be served separately as a dip or with meat entrees as a sauce. It is perfect addition for the gyros or souvlaki.
