Cooking Instructions

  1. Ensure your butter is at room temperature. In a food processor, blend the anchovies with the oil from the jar and the lemon juice till you have a smooth paste.
  2. Add the butter and lemon zest and blend till well incorporated and slightly whipped.
  3. Adjust the seasoning with table salt and cracked black pepper
  4. Cook’s note: The more you whip the butter the lighter it will become. You can also roll it into cling film and keep it in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for 3 months. Try this on seared Angus rib-eye steaks or hot oven-baked potatoes. – Hannah Lewry
