Avocado chilli flavoured butter

    2 hours 15 min

    Add a kick to barbecued steaks or grilled fish with a slice of this wonderful spicy avocado flavoured butter. The great thing about flavoured butters is that they can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to a month.

    Serves: 8

    • 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

    1. Place avocados, butter, chilli peppers, lime zest, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt and black pepper in a food processor; pulse until blended and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
    2. Place a large piece of cling film or greaseproof paper on your work surface. Scoop avocado mixture out into centre of the cling film. Fold bottom edge of cling film over mixture and roll into a log, twisting ends to seal. Chill until firm to the touch, about 2 hours in the fridge or 1 hour in the freezer.

    This butter works great on grilled chicken breasts. A little strong on the lime so next time I'll eliminate the zest. This butter can be real soft due to the amount of avocado so I suggest chilling well before serving.  -  21 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
