Chimichurri Butter Recipe by Ingrid Hoffmann

Chimchurri ButterIngredients
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temp
Salt

Directions
Place the vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, oregano, garlic and red pepper flakes in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a piece of cheesecloth or a kitchen towel and wring out the excess liquid. Place the mixture in a small bowl and stir in the butter.

Transfer the chimichurri butter to a sheet of plastic wrap and shape it into a log. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until it has hardened.

Note: I just placed in plastic container then scooped out with small ice cream scoop.

I also love Chimichurri with TUNA aka my “ChimiTuna”
