  • 1 jalapeño stemmed and seeded
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup grass fed unsalted butter softened
  • ½ tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp kosher salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • cilantro leaves from 2-3 sprigs optional


  • Finely chop the jalapeño, garlic cloves, and cilantro if you're adding it. You can do this by hand with a knife or add the ingredients to a small food chopper.
  • Add the chopped goodies to a bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until it's ready for use. It will keep for at least a week if not longer.
