How To Make Saffron Beurre Blanc

This saffron beurre blanc recipe is a modern take on the classic sauce. I like to use a good quality white wine, such as Chardonnay, and soak it with saffron threads. The vinegar adds acidity, while the shallots give the sauce a nutty onion flavor.

The key to making a good beurre blanc is to stir the sauce while it cooks. This will help keep the sauce from separating and give it a smooth, silky texture. Here are some ingredients and how to make this dish that I share with you.


  • 1 cup (240 ml) white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) vinegar
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, cubed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


1. In a small saucepan, bring the white wine, saffron threads, vinegar, and shallot to a simmer over medium heat.

2. Cook until the liquid has reduced by half.

3. whisk in the butter, one cube at a time, until the sauce is smooth and emulsified.

4. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Serve immediately or keep warm over low heat until ready to serve.
