Al’s stolen fish sauce recipe is the best! Made with only three ingredients, this butter, Worcestershire, lemon juice mixture can make grilled fish taste like a million dollars!
David makes this special sauce to baste fish when grilling. He made up a batch for me back when we were courting and really impressed me with it. I grew up on fried fish and had never eaten grilled fish. When I asked David what he called the sauce, he said he didn’t know.
David “stole” this recipe from an old fishing buddy of his. So I decided I would name it: “Al’s Stolen Fish Sauce“. Named after the fishing buddy, Al, he stole the recipe from.
With only three ingredients, this basting goodness is made with a mixture of butter, Worcestershire, lemon juice for basting on grilled fish. But that’s not all, this basting sauce is universal and can be used on any seafood you’d like to mop it on!
As promised from my posting last week “Seafood at 1000” Here is the recipe that David stole from his old fishing buddy Al.
This sauce can be used on baked fish also. It is simple goodness!
Lemon Butter Sauce for Fish
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- ½ cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic grated
- Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Warm until the butter melts and the sauce is thin.
- Brush the sauce over fish a few times on both sides while cooking on the grill, oven or stovetop.
