I tend to make a lot of the same basic things for dinner. We usually have pan cooked salmon every 1-2 weeks. I like to change up the basics by serving the dinner bread with compound butter.
Compound butter is really easy to make. It's just butter mixed with herbs & spices. This round I went with chives since I thought it would go well with the fish.
Directions: Soften a stick of butter at room temperature. Finely chop about 1/3 cup of chives. Mix the chives into the butter with a little bit of fresh cracked butter. Place a few spoonfuls into a bowl to serve with dinner. Form the rest into a log shape using parchment paper and freeze for later use.
