Garlic butter is perfect for steaks, pizza, boiled fish, lamb chops, potatoes and soups. It is the smoothest and best-tasting herb butter you've  ever tried.


  • Garlic cloves-6-8
  • Unsalted butter- 1/2 cup
  • Parsley/ coriander or mixed herbs- 1-2 tbsp.
  • Salt- to taste
  • Pepper-to taste


  1. Pour 2 liters of water into the saucepan and bring it to a boil. Then add unpeeled garlic cloves and boil for 5 seconds only.
  2. Drain, rinse and peel under cold water. Transfer to the saucepan and boil for another 30 seconds; drain and rinse.
  3. Pound garlic to a smooth paste in a mortar or crush them using the garlic press.
  4. Add butter and herbs and pound together for 1-2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Garlic butter


*Always cream or beat butter before you add the flavorings. Blend it using a hand mixer or mortar & pestle.

*I recommend to pound garlic to a paste with a pestle ( a garlic press can be used as well) and then gradually add butter with herbs.
