Lemon-Dill Butter

The consistency of this butter is a little different due to the lemon zest and juice that are added. It melts the same and tastes just as good though.

This butter is delicious on probably anything. So far I have enjoyed it on grilled shrimp, orzo, and tilapia. It is super easy to make and adds a nice touch to your meal.


  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temp
  • 2 tbsp. dried dill (or 1 tbsp. fresh dill)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest


In a small dish, melt butter on microwave for 20 seconds. Remove and add all ingredients. Stir to combine everything. Taste for seasonings. Put in refrigerator for about 30 minutes until the butter has set.

If you want, after about 15 minutes (when the butter is still soft and pliable but is not liquefied) you can move it from the bowl to plastic wrap and form it into a log. Or you can just leave it in the bowl and serve from there.
