 Sweet Fennel Butter

This soft butter will start melting as soon as it’s spooned over a piece of warm salmon, creating a simple sauce.

Yield: Makes about 1 cup

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh fennel fronds or fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Mix together the butter, fennel, orange juice, zest, and honey until smooth, either in a food processor, in an electric mixer, or by hand.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Scrape the butter into a decorative small bowl and serve.

Notes

A STEP AHEAD: You can make the butter up to 3 days ahead and store it, tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator. Bring it to room temperature a few hours before you plan to serve it.
