With an abundance of Herbs in my Living Larder Herb Garden always available, Herb Butter is one recipe that I make regularily.
225g Unsalted Butter at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon chopped Garlic
1 tablespoon chopped Spring Onions (white and green parts)
1 tablespoon chopped Dill
1 tablespoon chopped Flat Leaf Parsley
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
For the herb butter, combine the butter, garlic, spring onions, dill, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat until mixed, but do not whip.
My favourite is to spread some herb butter on a slice of thick granary bread and top it with a slice of smoked salmon.
However, Herb butter is great to use in any dish that benefits from the addition of herbs; pasta, steamed vegetables, chicken, fish, etc.
Herb Butter is easy to make and keeps well in your freezer. Great to keep handy for adding a little sparkle to last minute meals.
