A TRIO OF COMPOUND BUTTER
images by Frankie Leal

There is no simpler way to add flavor to baked goods, meat, fish and chicken than by infusing or slathering them with herbs and spices. This sounds fancy, but is no more difficult than mashing together butter and your choice of herbs, spices, citrus zest or other ingredients, such as roasted garlic cloves and mesquite seasoning.

The three recipes listed are meant to spark your creative juices. The sky is the limit as far as flavor combinations.
