Recipe Info

1 stick unsalted butter (8 tablespoons, softened)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 green onion, small finely minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1½ T spicy brown mustard, Dijon can be used
Juice from a lemon + zest
2 T fresh parsley, chopped
1 T fresh chives, chopped
1 t thyme
1 t paprika (smoked paprika, or hot paprika works as well)
pinch of cayenne (or more if you like it hot)
½ t crushed red pepper flakes, or use hot sauce, or both!
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Melt the butter slowly in a pan. Gently stir in the remaining ingredients until well combined. Serve as a dipping sauce or spooned over your dish.

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl, then transfer to a layer of plastic wrap. Form the butter mixture into the shape of a log about 1 inch in diameter, then wrap in the plastic. Alternatively, you can place the softened butter mixture it a small container, with an airtight lid, and serve it from the container. Refrigerate until hardened, then slice and serve over grilled meats or veggies.
