Directions

1. Soften butter to room temperature and finely chop all the ingredients.
2. Combine butter with parsley, chives, cilantro, fennel, salt, crushed pink peppercorns, chili pepper and lime zest. Mix well.
3. There you have 2 options:

  • Scoop compound butter with a coffee spoon to fill small jars, like we did for this recipe.
  • Roll up in parchment paper or plastic wrap and chill until firm. When firm, serve sliced with your choice of food.

Keep in the refrigerator for 5 days, in the freezer for a month. Allow frozen butter to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
