Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 lime
1 tbs butter (salted)
6-10 twists fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Add 1 tablespoon butter to small microwave safe dish. Zest 1/2 of lime and add zest only to dish with butter. Microwave high for 25 seconds, keeping an eye on it.

Remove from microwave and add pepper and squeeze in juice from 1/2 of the lime. Reserve the other half of the lime for another use.

Use immediately by brushing on fish or vegetables as they are grilling or save by freezing in a flat layer on waxed paper and cutting out individual pats with a knife or small cookie cutter.

This quick butter can be used immediately by carefully painting it directly on fish and vegetables while on the grill, or can be frozen on waxed paper and cut into small pats (pictured) to use as a garnish over warm foods.
