Roasted Garlic and Dill Butter

I’m a big fan of infused butter. Given my new-found love for seafood, I was excited to try something that is more seafood- and veggie-focused.

I can’t believe I just said that. I hope my red meat brethren don’t disown me now!

In any case, I wanted to develop something that was more dill-forward but not overpowering enough that it would detract from the flavor of the wild-caught fish I have been grilling lately. This one took a bit to nail down. The key for me was using unsalted butter and adding back in my own rosemary salt. Using salted butter with the rosemary salt was just too salty. What you’ll find below is the perfect addition to seafood, as well as spring vegetables.
