1. Put the olive oil in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Add the chopped shallot and sweat until soft, about 2 minutes.

2. While the shallot is sweating, turn the Cuisinart® Compact Juice Extractor on and juice the lemon, orange, fennel and carrots.

3. Add juice to the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Allow sauce to simmer for about 30 minutes, until reduced to about ²∕³ cup.

4. Once reduced, whisk in both the butter and basil immediately before serving.
