Chive Compound Butter

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.
