This compound butter recipe, also know as herb butter or beurre compose, is a great topping for all types of food. I love it on steak, chicken, fish and pastas. Fresh herbs are the star ingredient, and essential to the flavor of this recipe.
To make compound butter you’ll need salted butter, fresh chopped herbs, and garlic shallot puree. Kalamata olives are really good, either in place of, or in addition to the fresh herbs.
Mix together well and form into a cylinder on plastic wrap. Wrap up and refrigerate until ready for use.
