Garlic and Thyme Sauce

Garlic and Thyme Sauce

This is a delicious creamy garlic and thyme sauce. Prefect for a Chicken braai or pork tjop braai. With National Heritage Day around the corner you will see a lot of braai smoke soon. Why not join in this fun day and make some garlic and thyme sauce if you braai (BBQ) pork or chicken? You can also try the delicious Beetroot Side Salad for the Braai or Cool Cucumber Salad.This sauce is also very delicious as a pan fried dish sauce for chicken thighs or over a lovely chicken breast fillet piece. I can also recommend this delicious garlic and thyme sauce with a lovely fresh piece of white fish fillet such as hake. It is important in this recipe to use fresh garlic - those ones you get in the little tubs that is already been chopped and some other ingredients added to it, it is just not the same. Fresh garlic is seen as wonder food, it reduces the risk of cancer and heart diseases. Using fresh thyme in this recipe is not even debatable. I get my herbs from St Omer farm based in the Cape Winelands. You can decide which thyme to use: either broad leaf thyme, french thyme or golden lemon thyme. The golden lemon thyme is lovely to use as it adds some lemon flavours to it, which also enhances the flavours of this lovely sauce. Thyme is ancient Greek and they used it in their baths and made thyme oil. I would also like to recommend using real butter to fry the garlic, I know these days butter became so much more expensive but it does make a difference.
