I was recently flipping through one of the countless food magazines that proliferate around the house when I came across a gorgeous recipe and photo for Tilapia with Garlic-Lime Butter.
I do like tilapia, but it was the glistening butter that caught my eye.
Everything tastes better with butter, even more so when you sauté, drizzle or whisk in a nice flavored butter.
They’re so easy to make, too. Just soften butter and mix in your chosen ingredients, then let it harden back up in the fridge or use as-is. You can also simmer butter with add-ins to create a nice sauce.
No doubt it was the garlic and lime that really made that recipe sing, so here are a few other combos for flavored-butter inspiration:
- Parsley-Shallot Butter
- Smoky Paprika Butter
- Toasted Almond-Cardamom Butter
- Bacon Bourbon Butter
- Porcini-Red Wine
- Tumeric-Mustard Seed
