Compound butter is butter packed with flavorings. This one has a balance of pepper, parsley, and orange that is delicious atop anything from halibut to a grilled ear of corn.

Game plan: This butter will last up to 1 month in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.


  1. 1Place butter in a mixing bowl and use a rubber spatula to soften until it is very spreadable. Add remaining ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. 2Place compound butter on a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape into a log, and twist the ends to seal. Place butter in the refrigerator to harden, at least 30 minutes.
