SAUCE A L'AURORE, for Trout, Soles, &c

Author: Top of the Rock Astronaut / Labels: , ,

INGREDIENTS.--The spawn of 1 lobster, 1 oz. of butter, 1/2 pint of Béchamel, the juice of 1/2 lemon, a high seasoning of salt and cayenne.

Mode.--Take the spawn and pound it in a mortar with the butter, until quite smooth, and work it through a hair sieve. Put the Béchamel into a stewpan, add the pounded spawn, the lemon-juice, which must be strained, and a plentiful seasoning of cayenne and salt; let it just simmer, but do not allow it to boil, or the beautiful red colour of the sauce will be spoiled. A small spoonful of anchovy essence may be added at pleasure.

Time.--1 minute to simmer.

Sufficient for a pair of large soles.

Seasonable at any time.
