Nasturtium Butter with Orange Zest and a Hint of Heat

8-12 coins / servings

Citrusy, peppery, with the barest touch of heat, this butter is as flavorful as it is pretty!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup Nasturtium Flower Petals
  • 1/2 tsp Orange Zest, grated finely using a microplane
  • 1/4 tsp Aji Amarillo Powder
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground Pepper
  • A squeeze of fresh Lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

1

Let the butter sit at room temperature until it’s very soft and spreadable.
2

Soak the nasturtium blossoms to clean them well. Pick off and discard any stems, and pat the petals dry with a paper towel. Chop them finely, or pound them with the salt with a mortar and pestle.
3

Combine all the ingredients, and mix until well incorporated. Spoon onto a square of plastic wrap, and form into a tight log shape, and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes. Slice into thick coins and serve with rolls, or on grilled fish or steak.
