This luscious lemon sauce is a lovely accompaniment to your favourite fish, green vege or pasta. Perfect for using up lemons – make heaps and freeze.

Serves 6-8

To make your own lemon sauce, you will need:

 50 g butter

1 heaped tsp flour

500 ml stock (heated)

1 lemon

1 tbsp sour cream




Melt butter in a saucepan, add flour and cook for a few minutes. Add hot stock (use whichever you prefer) and stir until thickened.

Add the juice and rind of lemon, stir and remove from heat.

After waiting until the sauce cools slightly add sour cream for an extra creamy sauce.

Pour over your favourite meat or pasta. Especially tasty with chicken, fish, and kaimoana! Or poured over crisp, steamed green vegetables.
