Lemon Basil Compound Butter


Lemon Basil Compound Butter
Makes 1/2 cup of butter

1/2 cup salted butter, room temperature
2 TBSP fresh basil cut into thin ribbons
1/2 TBSP dried sweet basil
2 tsp lemon peel powder
1 TBSP lemon juice
2 tsp Californian Paprika
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or with a spoon if your butter is soften enough. Once combined you can form into a log and cover with plastic wrap so that you can cut into slices for easy use.

Try melting over fresh peas cooked with pasta for an amazing sauce or serve on top of a grilled steak.
