Seafood Inspired Compound Butter
Here's a quick recipe for our go to summertime pantry staple. Compound butter is a must for lobster bakes, grilled oysters and let's be honest - everyday! So here's to July in Maine, the ultimate seafood wonderland.
Makes One Stick
- 8 tbsps or one stick Unsalted Butter
- 1-2 tbsp(s) Chesapeake Bay Seasoning, Lemon Herb Fish Seasoning or Gulf Seafood Seasoning
- 2 tsp Whole Milk
- Salt to taste
Bring butter to room temperature and blend ingredients in a stand up mixer at low to medium speed. You can also mix by hand using grit, patience and a solid spoon. Once blended, shape into a log and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Compound butter can be made ahead and freezes well for up to six months. Feel free to experiment with flavors and pairings. We love Lemon Herb butter on grilled oysters, Chesapeake Bay butter melted with lobsters and Gulf Seafood butter on corn.
