Citrus Butter

A compound butter made with citrus zest.


  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • zest of 1 organic lime plus juice of 1/2 the lime
  • zest of 1 organic lemon plus juice of 1/2 the lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Place on a piece of parchment paper in a log shape. Roll up parchment (as you would a burrito), securing the ends by twisting parchment together. 
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve/use.


If you prefer less of a citrus kick and want a more subtle flavor, use less lemon and lime juice, or even omit and just use the zest.
