  • Turn down heat to lowest possible flame. Whisk in butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, adding a piece as previous one melts. Don't allow sauce to become too hot. For a more smooth sauce, strain through a fine sieve, if desired.

  • Season with salt and pepper and keep over a bain-marie. Just before serving, stir in herbs.
