Full Answer

To make the scampi sauce, melt the butter in a frying pan at medium heat until foaming. Add the minced garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 seconds, stirring occasionally, until the fragrances blend together. Add the white wine and cook the mixture for one minute or until the alcohol evaporates. Add shrimp and cook for an additional three to four minutes, until the shrimp is pink and opaque. Alternately, serve the sauce on the side as a complement to seafood or other white meats.

    How can a sauce that has too much salt be fixed?

    A:

    It is almost impossible to fix a sauce that has had too much salt added to it; however, the cook could dilute the sauce or add other ingredients that may overpower the salt such as lemon juice, wine or vinegar, although this may not suit a tomato sauce. The addition of starches, such as noodles or rice, may absorb some of the excess salty flavor. The noodles or rice can then be removed prior to serving.
