Chew On This
Lime Butter Sauce


Makes about 3/4 cup

1 large garlic clove, minced (optional)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Zest of 1 lime
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 stick (1/2 cup) room-temperature butter, unsalted

Combine garlic (if using), lime juice and zest, salt, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring to incorporate. Using a standing mixer or immersion blender, add melted butter and blend until emulsified, about 30 seconds. (If not using garlic, just use a bowl and a spoon.)

Sauce can be made 2 days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature, and stir before using.
