How To Make Compound Butter

Compound Butter is an easy way to add a wow factor to almost any dish.  This is one compound butter recipe that is heavy on the herbs, just the way I like it.  Tweak it, double it, change it completely.  You can make yours however you like.  Think fresh herbs, spices, truffles, cinnamon, honey… the sky is the limit!IMG_0650

1 stick unsalted Butter, at room temperature
Zest of 1 Lemon
1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
1 T Herbs de Provence

Put the room temperature butter in a bowl and stir to break it up.

Zest the lemon directly over the bowl of butter.

Add the salt and herbs.

Stir/mix until everything is combined.

Place the butter on some wax paper.

Roll tightly into a log… 
and twist the ends.

Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm back up.

Use on pasta, vegetable, seafood and a million other ways. Enjoy!

  1. This is a great idea, I will make this to keep on hand for grilling steaks. An easier way to spice up while on the grill. Thanks so much for another useful idea
