Lemon butter is good on pretty much everything: fish, seafood, poultry, rice. It’s also a great way to season green vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, or green beans.
For a really tasty butter, we recommend using a strong, hot pepper ground at the last minute. You can also make this recipe with herbs like tarragon or thyme, or even capers.
- ½ cup butter, at room temperature
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- Grands crus pepper blend, ground, to taste
Place all ingredients in a bowl.
Shape butter into a cylinder or transfer to a ramequin. Refrigerate.
