Butter & Sage Sauce

To prepare:

Melt butter in a large shallow skillet or fry pan over moderate heat , being careful not to brown it. Reduce heat and allow butter to reduce for a few minutes.

Add the fresh sage leaves and stir to allow the leaves to be gently toasted. Keep an eye on the mixture to make sure butter doesn't burn.
