Cilantro-Lime Butter

Courses: Sauces

Recipe Ingredients

2   Butter
3 tablespoons 45mlFinely-chopped cilantro leaves
1   Lime - juiced, zested

Recipe Instructions

Cut butter into chunks. Place butter in a bowl. Place bowl in microwave and cook on high for 15 seconds. To chop herbs super-fine, hold the tip of your knife on a cutting board and move the back of your knife up and down very fast going over the herbs again and again. Stir in chopped cilantro and lime zest and juice into the butter using a rubber spatula. Transfer the butter onto a large strip of plastic wrap.

Gather the ends of the plastic wrap in on 1 hand and use a straight edge, like a small cookie sheet pan, to push the butter back and away from your body making the butter take on a log shape. Gently roll the log wrapped in plastic back and forth on the countertop to evenly round out the shape. Twist up the extra wrap on the ends and place the compound butter log into the freezer to make the butter cold enough to slice again.

This recipe yields 1/2 pound.
