I picked up this sauce recipe at the Lighthouse restaurant in the Grand Caymans. This excellent German chef, would sit down at your table, and talk the evening’s menu to you. Then, without taking a single note, he would go back into the kitchen and prepare your meal. I had sea scallops with an excellent sauce drizzled over them that perfectly complimented the dish. After a bit of coaxing, he shared his sauce recipe with me. Like so many good recipes the ingredients are simple, and the preparation quick.
