Dill Compound Butter via Juggling Act Mama

Hello again, it’s Ang from Juggling Act Mama and today I’m sharing a recipe for simple Dill Compound Butter.  I started my herb garden a little late this year, but my little plants have made up for it and have flourished.  I have basil, parsley, thyme, oregano, mint and more coming out of my ears right now!  One of the ways I love to use fresh herbs is by making compound butters.  The idea is quite simple – flavor unsalted butter with herbs, sugar and/or other seasonings – and the combinations are endless!

This simple dill compound butter is the perfect accompaniment to any seafood dish – in fact, it’s perfect to serve with a whole New England Clam Bake meal!  Shrimp and lobster, sure, but also on corn on the cob and new potatoes, too!

Ingredient List
  • 16 oz 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Parchment Paper
  1. In a small bowl, cream the butter, then add in the salt and dill.
  2. Lay out a piece of parchment paper. Using a spatula, scrape the butter mixture onto the parchment paper into the shape of a log.
  3. Roll the log up, twisting the ends tightly. Refrigerate until firm - about 1-2 hours.
  4. When you're ready to serve, unroll and slice into 1/2-inch thick pieces.
  5. Store leftovers in the refridgerator for 1 week, or in the freezer in a sealed bag/container for up to 1 month.
