8 PRO Tips for the Garlic Butter Sauce Recipe

  • The most important step in cooking this sauce recipe is garlic roasting. It is crucial to cook it at a low temperature and mix it frequently because it burns very easily and thus becomes bitter, a taste that is also transmitted to the sauce.
  • Another important thing is to chop the garlic cloves very finely in order to get a sauce with a smooth texture. If you can, I suggest you mince it for a very fine sauce.
  • Adjust the garlic amount according to your taste – 4-5 cloves for a mild taste, up to 10 cloves for a medium taste, and up to 15 cloves for a very strong garlic taste.
  • The amount of lemon just can be also adapted to your preferences, you can add up to 5 tbsp of fresh lemon juice for a stronger flavor.
  • The fresh parsley leaves should be also chopped very finely for a professional look and smooth taste.
  • Parsley can be replaced with other herbs such as dill, coriander, chives, or basil.
  • Nutmeg is a very strong spice, use it in low quantities. You can replace it with the Provence spice mixture, which is also very flavored.
  • Serve the butter sauce while still warm because it tends to harden on cooling and become oily.
