Tarragon and Lemon Butter Recipe

Very delicious butter, perfect for meat, fish, or shellfish. Recipe adapted from https://www.sprinklesandsprouts.com/tarragon-and-lemon-butter/
Ingredients: 2 teaspoons (10 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) dried tarragon leaves, 1 fresh shallot, freshly ground black pepper, 1/2 cup (125 ml) unsalted butter

Instructions: In a small mixing bowl, combine lemon juice and dried tarragon. Mix, then set aside and allow soaking. Place the shallot in a food processor and process well. Using a spatula, push the sides down and then add the remaining ingredients.

Process well until you have a well-combined butter.
Lay a large piece of plastic wrap out on the bench, then spoon lemon-tarragon butter onto the long edge of prepared cling film. Very carefully roll the plastic wrap around the lemon-tarragon butter. Tie a quick knot in the ends of the cling film, then put in a refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours.

Serve with any cooked meat, fish, or shellfish such as grilled oysters.
