Here’s what you will need:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Zest of a lime
Salt and black pepper, to taste
In a bowl, using a hand mixer (or by hand with a fork) beat together the butter, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, salt, and pepper until well combined.
Transfer the butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Then roll up to form a cylinder. Twist both end tight and refrigerate for at least one hour. The butter is ready to serve when cold and solid.
Butter will last in the refrigerator for about five days.
