Cilantro Lime Compound Butter

Compound butter with cilantro and lime! Great with corn-on-the-cob, veggies, shrimp or steak!

  • Prep time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

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.
