- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a saute pan. Add the scallions and salt and cook over high heat until the scallions blacken slightly and take on a smoky flavor. Cool and mix with the soft butter.
2. Scoop the flavored butter onto a piece of waxed paper and roll into a cylindrical shape. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Slice off “coins” of the butter to serve with boiled or grilled corn or anything other type of vegetable.
