Compound butter with cilantro and lime! Great with corn-on-the-cob, veggies, shrimp or steak!
- 8 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature (slightly softened)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro, packed
- 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon lime zest (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt
1 Mix together the chopped cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, and salt in a medium bowl.
2 Smash the softened butter into the cilantro lime mixture and mix it until the cilantro is well distributed.
3 To 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.
