Cilantro and Thai Red Curry Butter

Tess Geer


Compound butters, butter with additional ingredients added to it to enhance the flavor, are important in French cuisine. However, one doesn't need to stick to traditional recipes. This butter absolutely explodes with flavor! It is fantastic with meat, fish, chicken and especially corn on the cob! Try adding a pat to a steak or burger just off the grill. If you have never tried Thai Red Curry, you are in for a treat. Found in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores, it comes as a paste. It is not at all hot, and the flavor is incredible. Paired with cilantro, it's a marriage made in heaven!
