Recipe Time

Prep: 2 Minutes
Cook: 12 Minutes


2 tablespoons minced shallot
1/4 cup clam juice
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
3/4 cup cold butter, cut into 1 Tbsp. pieces
1 tablespoon vanilla vodka
Pinch of salt


Combine shallot and clam juice in a 10" skillet; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add cream. Cook for 3 minutes or until liquid is almost evaporated. Stir in vanilla bean paste.

Reduce heat to low, and whisk in butter, 1 Tbsp. at a time, whisking after each addition, until butter melts. Swirl pan, as necessary after each addition of butter, removing pan from heat to prevent butter from browning. Whisk in vodka and salt. Serve hot.
