Lobster Roe Compound Butter
The dark green sacs of roe found in many lobsters offer a lot of great lobster flavor. They also perform a fun culinary magic trick, changing color to pale orange when cooked. Here’s how to turn the roe into compound (flavored) butter, a great addition to sauces and pasta dishes.
- 1/2 cup Fresh Lobster Roe (we got this much from four lobsters)
- 3/4 lb Unsalted Butter, room temperature
Take care to heat it gently so the roe doesn’t scramble.
