How To Cook Spring Onion and Parsley Sauce?

Spring onion and parsley sauce

This is cream based and rather richer than a traditional white sauce, but it is bright in taste and color and is excellent with white fish like roast cod or grilled skate.

Serve 4 to 6

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes



  • 8 to 10 spring onions, the white finely chopped and the greens shredded lengthways

  • 2 tbsp groundnut or sunflower oil

  • 1 green chili, finely chopped (optional)

  • 250 ml (9 fl oz) double cream

  • 1 large handful (about 5 tbsp freshly chopped flat leaf parsley)

  • Salt and paprika


  1. Cook the whites of the onions in the oil in a small frying pan for 6 to 8 minutes over a medium heat until well softened - add the chili with the spring onions if using.

  2. Pour in the cream and bring the sauce to the boil. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cream is just starting to reduce.

  3. Stir in the shredded spring onion greens and the parsley, then season to taste. Add any fish liquor that you have, then serve the sauce spooned over the fish.
