Hearts of Palm Sauce

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.

How to Make Hearts of Palm Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Sauté the hearts of palm in the butter and olive oil, until they are fall-apart tender, but do not burn.

    Chef's Note: I've used canned hearts of palm with this recipe several times, with excellent results.
  2. Add the garlic, half & half, salt, pepper, and cumin, and then heat until the mixture just begins to simmer.
  3. Remove from heat, and blend in a mixer, or food processor until smooth.
  4. This is an excellent sauce for seafood, and goes well with my posted, Baked Scallops recipe.
