Recipe: Lemon-Caper Butter Rub
Makes 1/3 cup 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon capers, drained and mashed
1 teaspoon packed grated lemon zest
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon House Herbs (see Note) or other dried Italian herb blend
1 tablespoon diced yellow onion
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Whisk together melted butter, capers, lemon zest, garlic powder, herbs, onion, salt and pepper. Set aside for salmon.
Note: To make 3-¼ tablespoons dried House Herbs, pulse 1-½ teaspoons rosemary in a food processor until finely chopped. In a small bowl mix together rosemary, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 tablespoon basil, a pinch of allspice, ¾ teaspoon marjoram, 1 teaspoon thyme, ¼ teaspoon white pepper and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Store in an airtight container in a dry place. (Heat, bright light and air destroy the flavor of herbs, and moisture can cause mold.) For best flavor, use within 6 months.
