         Years ago I knew a chef who ran a high volume seafood restaurant. Many of the dishes called for sautéing the fish, deglazing with wine, reducing and then finishing with a lump of compound butter that had cornstarch mixed in. Season and serve. 

    I never found out how much cornstarch he added to the butter.

    What do you think would be the right amount of 

    cornstarch per pound of butter?
