Chorizo butter

It seems to be a theme in restaurants these days to flavour the butter. So far I have tasted ham butter, lardo butter, the classic garlic butter and by far the favourite, chorizo butter.

Essentially the method is the same for each. The trick is to get the balance right so that it is full of flavour but not to overwhelming, so you’ll have to taste a lot!

The butter can be used as an appetizer with bread, as a melted butter over a dish (chorizo butter for example complements scallops) or in flavour combining, e.g. to liven up a sandwich.

It’s a simple but effective condiment

It takes 3 minutes
