What’s my secret to spicing up sauces, steaks, vegetables, fish and more? Compound butter. Compound butter is a great way to add an extra layer of flavor to a dish. It’s basically a fancy term for adding herbs, zests or anything with flavor to plain old butter. They are easy to make and the possibility of ingredient combinations are endless. My favorite way to use compound butter is with proteins. I’ll saute shrimp and fish with this orange-jalapeño butter or drizzle melted lemon-parsley-thyme butter on steaks and chicken.
