Szechuan Compound Butter
The elusive flavor of Szechuan pepper is captured neatly in this delicious compound butter. The mild peppery bite is perfectly measured and the tingly aftertaste lingers in the most pleasant way. A hint of lemon and scallion complete the flavor profile.
We enjoyed a generous dollop on a couple of New York steaks with a simple green salad alongside, and the Szechuan sensation was the highlight of the meal. This compound butter would also be delicious on seafood, chicken or grilled vegetables.
