This is my quick, easy, and incredibly tasty Drawn Butter for Seafood that combines rich melted butter with white wine, onion, garlic, lemon, and dill. My additions make the flavor out of this world while still keeping the process really quick. It's easy enough to manage on the back burner while you're busy cooking up some fabulous seafood!
In a small saucepan, heat olive oil to medium heat. Add onion, cook for 30 seconds to a minute then add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds to a minute (depending on how soft you like your onion & garlic).
1 tsp olive oil, ¼ small white onion, ½ Tbsp garlic
Add the white wine and cook for 1 minute before adding the butter. Add the butter and cook until melted (reduce heat to prevent boiling, if necessary). Add seasoning: dill and ground black pepper, stir to combine.
⅓ cup white wine, 1 cup butter, ¼ tsp dill, 1 pinch black pepper
Squeeze the lemon juice into the drawn butter mixture and continue to cook on low. We usually leave our drawn butter on low until we are ready to dish up our seafood. At that point, you can skim the fat that has risen to the top (if desired) or serve immediately.
