Cilantro-Lime Butter

Cilantro-Lime Butter


Author note: The foundation of this recipe (softened butter and salt) is an excellent base in which to experiment. If serving Italian food combine chopped garlic, chopped parsley, lemon juice and lemon zest to the softened butter. If desiring something more sweet omit the salt, add sugar and orange zest to the softened butter. Be adventurous and have fun with it.

1 stick unsalted butter, brought to room temperature

juice of ½ a lime

zest of ½ a lime

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ cup of chopped cilantro

  1. Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours before serving.
