The other day I went out for tapas. One of the dishes was meatballs and they were in a delicious nutty sauce.
I have tried googling with no luck, as I want to try to replicate the sauce or something similar this evening for a couple of guests.
Does anyone have a nice recipe for a sauce that goes nicely with meatballs (not tomato based)?

That's weird. I definitely didn't get that when I googled!!
Oh goodness, I don't know if I can be bothered with such a long winded recipe. I'm a fan of 'bung it all in a pan and stir' when the weather is so hot grin
Suppose I was being rather too hopeful!

No - it looks a complete faff!

I am also taking you at your and Nigella's word that but sauce and meatballs is lovely!

Ha ha at 'but sauce'.

Did you notice that the recipe calls for '1 gram of onions'? Nice proof reading there.

So 1/5 tsp of chopped onion needed. hmm

What sort of nuts?

If you can forget about the nut factor, I highly recommend this:

It's divine, takes a few minutes and has surprisingly complex flavours that make people think you slaved for hours:

Whisky cream sauce

500ml/17fl oz double cream
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp whisky
sea salt and freshly ground white pepper
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
½ lemon, juice only

Preparation method
Heat the double cream in a pan over a medium heat.

Add the wholegrain mustard, Dijon mustard and whisky and stir to combine.

Increase the heat until the mixture is simmering and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Stir in the tablespoon of chives, then whisk in the lemon juice.

Sorry, forgot to say - we serve it with Haggis bonbons but I think it would be brilliant with any meat.

poppy - that's delish! I serve my sauce with haggis pie. Layer of haggis, layer of beeps and later of potato. Tis lovely <modest>

If it was tapas it's probably an almond sauce.

But Poppy's sauce looks delish too, if I can be bothered to go out to sainsburys for the ingreds!
