low carb and reduced fat sauces

sueatmo | Nov 16, 2012 04:00 PM

I tend to like well prepared food, served simply. Or in other words, plain. I'd like to explore some sauces that would work well for us. I must eat low carb and Mr. Sueatmo must eat reduced fat. The only thing I've been able to come up with is a little melted butter mixed with hot sauce, like a chipolte flavored hot sauce. I can't use a lot of butter, so often what I attempt to pour over our food is pretty skimpy.

Any ideas for a nice sauce to spoon over a piece of grilled meat or fish? Or to make steamed broccoli something special? I think I've tried lemon juice and butter which is only OK, probably because I don't use enough butter for the flavors to sparkle. At any rate, if any one has any tips or tricks, I'd like to hear them.

Thanks in advance.
