Tuesday's Romance of Cookery and Housekeeping

Lemon Sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour+
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
Mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the water and beat vigorously. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice and butter. Cook 2 more minutes. If too thin sprinkle in a bit more Wondra flour until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately over grilled fish. I grilled Mahi Mahi and it was really delicious.
