Compound butter, June 15 2015

Compound butter with cilantro, shallots, and lime juice! What’s compound butter? It’s been the talk of an NPR morning show this past week and of the New York Times cooking column (read all about it here — scroll down a little). It’s basically butter mixed with herbs and shallots or garlic and lemon or lime juice, which you make and then save for frying eggs with or for putting on fish or just for having on some wonderful bread (e.g. toasted). Since we have lots of cilantro just now (almost twice as much as we had in this post here), I made a batch of the stuff with it, which should be delicious on corn on the cob! Of course it didn’t put much of a dent in our crop of cilantro … but that’s OK!
