It’s July. Barbecues are a-plenty. What sounds better than grilling with chile, garlic and lime?! Adding a zesty flair, this spicy butter is perfect to use when grilling fish or shrimp. I personally adore it melted over grilled corn on the cob. What would you pair with chile lime garlic butter?
1/2 c. homemade butter
2 tsp. chile powder
2 tsp. garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. fresh lime zest
Using a spoon or your hands, blend the chile powder, garlic and lime zest into softened butter. This is best with sweet cream butter, the sweet flavor works as a delicious balance to the heat.
Shape the butter into a log using plastic wrap. Refrigerate until butter log is firm – approximately thirty minutes.
