Garlic Herb Compound Butter by Cafe Sicilia

Sep 15, 2015 02:19PM ● Published by Kevin

Compound butters are very versatile and can add a great finishing touch to your dish.  This garlic and herb butter is great on grilled meat, portobello mushrooms  or  toasted ciabata bread.  Just add a disk of the butter on the cooked meat and watch it melt to create a wonderful sauce. The only rule is to use fresh herbs! Recipe courtesy of Cafe Sicilia - Arlington, TX.

Ingredients:

2 sticks of room temperature unsalted butter

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons finely snipped chives

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

1 teaspoon chopped thyme

1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

pinch chili pepper

Directions:

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. (Or get a workout and mix it by hand)!

Wipe down a flat work surface with a damp cloth. Place a piece of plastic wrap on the damp surface with the longest side facing you. (The damp will help the plastic wrap stay put!) Using a silicone spatula put the butter in the center of  the plastic wrap in the shape of a rough log. Pull the long end of the plastic over the butter and roll it up. Twist the ends and place in the fridge to harden, or in the freezer for later use.

The combinations of ingredients are endless. Try Capers, dill, garlic, lemon zest and juice on  fish or chipotle pepper in adobo sauce with cilantro on skirt steak. Get creative with your combinations and share your recipes!

Buon Appetito!
