What to do
1. Heat the butter in the frying pan over a low–moderate heat – be careful not to burn the butter.
2. Drop the sage leaves into the butter and swirl the frying pan over the heat – carefully – until the butter foams and the leaves become crisp. (Also look for the golden brown colour appearing in the thinnest liquid of the butter – this is the ‘noisette’.) Watch carefully so you don’t burn the leaves, and take the pan off the heat as soon as the leaves start to crisp
3. Spoon the sauce over your dish while both are still hot so your dish absorbs some of the sauce.
