Fish Veloute Sauce




Yield ; 20 oz.





2 C. Fish Stock

1 pc. Bay Leaf

1 t. Lemon Juice

2 oz. White Wine

Salt & White Pepper, To Taste

Blond Roux, As Needed



Method -

In a saucepan heat the Fish stock until simmering, add a little roux and wisk it together, add the remaining seasonings and bring to a simmer. Let simmer at least 20 minutes.

Add roux until the sauce has a medium thick consistency and can easily coat a spoon.

Strain the sauce through a chinoise strainer. This strainer will make the sauce smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. It is optional to finish this sauce with 1 oz. of heavy cream and 1 T. butter. Cover the sauce and keep hot on a double boiler until need or cool off and refrigerate.


Chefs Note: This sauce is used to make many different Fish and Seafood sauces (Herb Seafood Sauce, Mushroom Sauce, Normandy Sauce,,,). We like to finish this sauce with a little chopped parsley and lemon zest for grilled Hawaiian Opaka Paka.
