If you over season the sauce, Like I said before, less is more! When making sauces especially, it’s super easy to season, taste, and season some more. To take down too much seasoning, you’ll have to add in more bone broth and water to balance the flavors — then likely more cornstarch to thinking the mixture again. You’ll then end up with LOTS of sauce.
If your sauce is too sour, then you probably just have a bit too much lemon juice in comparison to your other ingredients. Even that out by adding in a little more garlic, shallots, and white wine, then whisk together. Don’t be afraid to taste your sauce while you cook to ensure you’re getting the perfect flavors.
