Directions

  1. 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.

Sublime! Once I figured out what galangal was and found it at my local Asian market, this became SO definitely a keeper. My husband, who is a very fussy eater, started eating with long teeth and ended up wiping up both our plates with a bit of bread to get the last of this delicious sauce. Make exactly as it says in the recipe.

This sauce was delicious! My finance told me that it was the best meal I've made in months (hmm... thanks?) I doubled (or tripled? I NEVER measure) the sauce because I mixed it with angel hair pasta, red pepper, spinach, and grilled chicken, and we like a lot of sauce. Used ginger instead of galangal. Also, as odd as it may seem (because we can NEVER exactly follow a recipe), we mixed in chili paste, mozzarella cheese, and more cilantro to the final product, and it gave it more of a punch... and I just love cheese. Not that the recipe wasn't great before the add-ins, but we will continue to make with the add-ins.
