16 tbsp. Unsalted Butter, room temperature
¼ cup Fresh Cilantro, rough chop
1 clove Fresh Garlic, peeled & rough chop
1 small Shallot, rough chop
1 medium Fresh Lime, zested & juiced
to taste Salt & Black Pepper (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse 5 times for 5 seconds each. Scrape sides as needed between pulses. Then process for 1 minute to fully combine. Use for current meal or freeze for future use. To freeze, place half of the butter in a line down the middle of plastic wrap. Bring over the butter one side of the plastic wrap and form into a log. Roll up completely in the plastic wrap and then twist the ends to finish. Repeat process with the second half of the butter. Label and store in freezer until needed.
Note: If you like a little heat, add a jalapeno or serrano chile to process. Depend on heat level, you can remove or leave the seeds of the chile.
