Lime butter is another one of those little gems I’ve been sitting on FOREVER and haven’t shared with you. If you use flavored butters already you may have made something similar to this. If not, you REALLY need to try this.
It’s simple, really. Just softened butter, lime zest and juice, and a little salt.
What do you do with it?
Ahh… lots of things. My personal favorite is finishing off spice-rubbed steaks or putting a (embarrassingly) large dab on the inside of a freshly baked sweet potato.
You could also put it on grilled vegetables, chicken, fish, and corn on the cob. You ARE grilling for the 4th of July, aren’t you? (I’d have to question your patriotism if you aren’t.)
I try not to get bossy around here, but you really need to try this. Pronto.
- 1 stick of softened butter or ghee (preferably grass-fed)
- 1 lime, zested and juiced
- pinch of sea salt
- Combine butter, zest (from the whole lime), and juice (from half of the lime) and salt. Blend well.
- Keep in an airtight container. It'll last a couple of days at room temperature. For longer storage, chill.
