Lemon dill compound butter is quick and super easy to make. This herbed butter goes well with sea food, steak, chicken or potatoes. It does not only boost their flavor but also makes them extra creamy and juicy.
In a bowl, combine the softened butter with lemon zest, lemon juice and finely chopped dill. Mix well. Transfer onto a plastic wrap and roll it into a log.
Refrigerate until firm. When hard, slice it and use on anything you like!
Butter – use real butter. I used unsalted butter as this way I can easily control the amount of sodium in our diet. If you like, you can use salted butter.
Lemon juice – you can add less or more lemon juice, if you like. Just note that the more juice you add, the thinner the mixture. If you feel it way too thin, chill it for a while so it hardens a bit before you continue.
Storage – up to 7 days in the fridge or several weeks in the freezer. I suggest pre-cutting the chilled butter before you store it in the freezer. That way you just take as many slices of butter as you need without having to wait for the whole log to soften.
