1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon Key lime zest
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small skillet; cook over medium heat until reduced to 3 tablespoons. Stir in whipping cream, and cook until reduced to 3 tablespoons.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring until butter melts. Remove from heat; strain through a metal sieve. Stir in lime zest and salt. Keep warm. Stir in chives just before serving.
I used regular limes as well as key limes are not available often in my area. I made this in conjunction with the key lime grilled shrimp recipe but this would be great on grilled veggies and grilled chicken or steak.
