How to Make Cilantro Compound Butter

Compound butter sounds like something fancy that would take a long time to make. Something you might bring out for special occasions or holidays or when you host your best friend’s baby shower. It doesn’t sound like something you might prepare for a family dinner on a weeknight or when the baby is crying and the dog won’t leave the kitchen. Compound butter just sounds like work.

The truth is, compound butter is incredibly easy and only takes a minute or two of prep work. Our favorites involve simple, straightforward herbs and spices you can use on multiple dishes. Today, we’re making a cilantro butter we think will pair perfectly with fresh summer corn on the cob. It would also be great with toasted bread, potatoes, chickenshrimp or pork.

To make the compound butter, use a food processor. It makes combining the herbs and the butter a cinch and it works quickly. To prepare the butter for forming and cooling, you can use a ramekin (as we did here) or create a roll in some wax paper, twist the ends, and then slice when cool. Either way works great – it just depends on your preference.
