Cilantro Lime Herb Butter

An herbed butter is a great way to dress up corn-on-the-cob, veggies of all kinds, chicken, fish, prawns, pork, steak, you name it. Here’s an herb butter recipe, Southwestern style, with cilantro and lime. Do you ever make herbed butters? If so, what’s your favorite combo?


  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature (slightly softened)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro, packed
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix together butter, cilantro, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl. Serve as is or save for later.

If you save the butter for later, wrap it up in plastic wrap in the shape of a log and refrigerate until stiff. To use, just unwrap and slice from the butter log.

Serve with corn-on-the-cob or over your favorite fill-in-the-blank.
