Ingredients 

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter
  • Garlic
  • Shallots
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • White wine
  • Fresh parsley
  • Lemon juice

 

Directions

To make garlic butter simply heat some extra virgin olive oil in a pan, add a little finely chopped garlic, and a few chopped shallots. Cook these together over a low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Pour in some white wine, a little lemon juice, and bring all ingredients to a boil until almost evaporated.

Let this cool completely while the sticks of unsalted butter are softening, then blend it all together with some chopped parsley.

The flavored butter will keep in the refirdgerator for a week or more. Just roll or cover it tightly in cellophane wrap.
