This sauce works wonderfully with grilled fish. Spoon it right over the hot fish to infuse the flavors and serve immediately.


  • 1/4 cup apple cider or juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup clam juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, sliced thin
  • 4 tablespoons julienned Granny Smith apple
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon


  1. Combine the apple cider, wine, clam juice and shallots in a medium saucepan over moderate-high heat, and bring to a boil.
  2. Once the mixture is boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 7 minutes until mixture is reduced.
  3. Using a whisk, drop in the butter slices and whisk continuously to incorporate until butter is totally melted. Stir in the apples and tarragon and add a few pinches of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately with grilled fish.
