Snapper with Prawns and Sauce Jacqueline

Serves 4 Prep Time 30 minutes   Rated:

This recipe is really all about the sauce. I mean anyone can pan fry snapper and prawns, but the addition of this amazing sauce is what makes it so elegant, and very more-ish. I looked for the origins of this sauce everywhere and couldn't find anything definitive. Needless to say it is an emulsion, French and of course has butter in it. Often served with seafood, I think if you make this once, you will be making it again and again. It works well with all green veggies, certainly would be fantastic with chicken, or rabbit and I think it would be amazing with eggs or pasta.

SO...not your basic hollandaise, but your newest sauce on the Frenchy hit list!

'Sauce Jacqueline', who ever she was, this is a genius recipe!
