Avgolemono-Lemon Egg Sauce
  • This creamy lemon sauce is easy to make and is a fantasic topping for any kind of fish. We especially like it with our squid steak recipes.

  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped


  • In a small heavy sauce pan, boil until reduced by half, wine and stock. Meanwhile, whisk eggs with with lemon juice in a bowl. Slowly whisk reduced stock and wine mixture into eggs, very slowly or eggs will curdle.Return mixture to saucepan and cook stirring constantly over medium-low heat until sauce is slightly thickened. Strain through a fine meshed seive.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and chives.
  • You can keep this warm for up to an hour before serving.
