Makes 1-1/2 cups Variations-- Substitute a favorite wine or rice vinegar, white or red wine, lime or orange juice. Substitute 2/3 cup beer for the lemon juice. Good with lobster or crab. Substitute 1 tablespoon finely-chopped garlic for the shallots. Use 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice plus 1/2 cup fresh or canned grapefruit juice. Good for fish. Before whisking in butter, add 2 tablespoons heavy cream and 1 teaspoon curry powder. Good for scallops or shrimp. BEURRE ROUGE - substitute 1/2 cup red wine plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar.
