Have you been taking full advantage of your grill? We love to grill out in the summer – especially when you’re talking steaks and salmon.
The recipe I’m sharing today for this four-ingredient garlic herb butter is so versatile and can be used on everything from steak and vegetables to pasta and potatoes.
Just a spoonful adds wonderful flavor to everything it touches. You’re going to always want a log of this butter in your fridge at all times!
Let’s get started!
HOW TO MAKE GARLIC HERB BUTTER:
To make your own compound butter, you’ll only need four ingredients:
- Salted butter
Begin by combining all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
Spoon the mixture onto wax or parchment paper and roll into a small log. Close the ends of the paper by twisting and refrigerate for at least two hours.
Once the butter is chilled it can be sliced to make gorgeous rounds of butter.
WHAT CAN YOU USE THIS BUTTER ON?
This garlic herb butter just brings everything up a notch! You can use it on:
- Seafood (like grilled fish and shrimp scampi!)
- Corn on the cob
- Fresh vegetables
- And more!
HOW LONG WILL COMPOUND BUTTER KEEP IN THE FRIDGE?
You can keep the butter in the fridge for 1-2 weeks and it will remain fresh.
While it’s common to store plain butter at room temperature, you’ll want to make sure this butter is refrigerated to keep the herbs fresh.
CAN I FREEZE HERB BUTTER?
Yes! After you have the butter wrapped in the wax or parchment paper, wrap it again in foil to protect it from picking up flavors of other foods in your freezer.
Once frozen, try and use the butter within 3-4 months.
