Roasted Jalapeño Butter
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- Cook Time: 10 mins
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: Makes 1/2 cup
- 125g butter, at room temperature
- 60g jalapeño’s, whole
- 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Place a wire-rack on top of a gas-stove and ignite the burner. Pierce the jalapeño’s a couple of times with a toothpick and put them on the wire-rack directly above the flames. Roast and turn until blackened on all sides and leave to steam in a ziplock-bag to loosen the skin, about 5 minutes.
