Cilantro Lime Honey Butter - a great way to add flavor to so many favorites; steak, chicken, pork and seafood just to name a few.Cilantro Lime Honey Butter isn’t a simple old butterThis is butter that has been infused with other ingredients – cilantro, lime, honey & a chipotle pepper.  It is butter that will be chosen to enhance the flavors of some of your favorite foods such as Grilled Chicken with Cilantro Lime Honey Butter.  This is a compound butter.

I like to think of compound butters as having complex personalities.  You know, like the pale, shy guy down the street who looks like all he does is stay home to stare at C-Span.  In truth, he is much more interesting than he looks.  In truth, he lives for the weekends when he flies to Paris to sell watercolors of nudes next to the River Seine.  Please don’t ask me how I know.

Cilantro Lime Honey Butter is kind of like that guy, and is as interesting as its name sounds but subtly so.  No one flavor shouts “Hey!! Taste me, look at me, I’m the best.”  They are in this thing together.  They know they have to work together to make their life as interesting as it can be.  One flavor does not outshine the others because they know their job is to complement, not overwhelm, the dish they are creating.

Uh-oh!  I would love to tell you more about compound butters but the guy down the street just calledHe said he is going away this weekend to visit his great-aunt Myrtle and asked if I would water his flowers.  I told him “Oui, mais j’ai la moitié de l’argent vous êtes payé pour l’aquarelle de moi. ”
