Basil Herb Butter
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/4 cup finely chopped basil
- 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well until herbs are distributed evenly. Dump onto a piece of waxed paper or parchment, shape into a cylinder or disk, and seal ends by twisting, or pack into a ramekin (however you prefer to store and serve it) and cover with plastic. Chill in refrigerator until firm, at least an hour.
