Five Ingredients or LessYes
Type of DishDip/spread, Sauces
- 1 shallot, minced
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, divided
- Sea salt and white pepper to taste
- 1 cup Prosecco or other sparkling wine
- 1 cup mango purée
In a heavy-bottom saucepan, melt about 2 tablespoons of the butter and sauté the shallots until fragrant and golden. Stir in salt and pepper.
Deglaze the pan with the Prosecco. Add the mango purée and cook over a low flame, stirring occasionally to keep from burning.
When the liquid has been reduced by half, about 10 minutes, add the rest of the butter to finish the sauce and adjust the seasonings.
Cook for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
