Szechuan Compound Butter
This delicious Szechuan compound butter neatly captures the elusive flavor of Szechuan pepper. The mild peppery bite is in perfect balance, 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 on the side, and the Szechuan sensation was the highlight of the meal. This compound butter would also be delicious on seafood, chicken or grilled vegetables.
