Maggie’s Herb Butter

Vary the inclusions to match the protein i.e. cinnamon and honey for roast sweet potato, lemon and caper for fish, if budget allows red wine and chervil for beef! Suitable to freeze; Roll either logs or pipe rounds on greaseproof lined trays and freeze. Prior to service defrost and then top each warm protein, serve as it melts over


  1. Mix the softened butter, herbs, anchovies, garlic, sea salt and pepper in a small bowl until well combined. (If making large quantities use a mixing machine to combine.)
  2. Place on a piece of cling wrap and roll into a sausage shape (alternatively pipe 2cm rounds onto a tray). Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to set.
  3. Simply unwrap, slice and top warm protein.
