Tuesday Night - you know what that means

It's fish night again- (already, how did that happen?)

Our lemon thyme looks beautiful (and it's about the only thing:)) so............ I searched for lemon thyme sauce and came up with this- I'll give it a try with salmon

Lemon Thyme Sauce:
1 minced shallot
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons butter, cut into 3 pieces
1/4 teaspoon arrowroot (optional)
1 teaspoon chopped thyme

In small sauce pan, combine shallots, wine and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, uncovered until shallots are tender and much of the liquid has evaporated (about 5 minutes). Shallots should be tender but not dark. Remove from heat and add 1 piece of butter, stirring with a wire whisk or wooden spoon until the butter has melted. Place the pan over low heat and add the remaining butter, one piece at a time until the butter melts. (If thicker sauce is desired, stir in arrowroot and continue to cook until thickened (about 1 minute). Stir in thyme and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
