Hey! Where are you going? This is good, trust me.
A while back when I was at a doctor's office waiting for mum-in-law to be finished with her appointment I was skimming a magazine. Can't remember which one it was, could've been Gourmet Traveller but I truly don't remember.
Anyways, one of the recipes I skimmed was butter with anchovies and bunch of other stuff like tuna lots of seasonings. Since I couldn't remember all the ingredients I figured I'd try making some when we got home but that'd I'd "keep it simple".
Fast Forward almost a YEAR!
Totally, completely, forgotten about. But then when I was checking the pantry I noticed we were getting low on anchovies and that reminded me about the recipe I skimmed a year previous.
Not remembering anything that went into it besides anchovy and butter I pretty much started from scratch. But I did get the idea from the magazine --whichever magazine it was!
Dave's Whipped Anchovy Butter
What you need:
2 to 3 tbsp butter
2 or 3 anchovy fillets (1 per tbsp of butter)
1 tbsp cream
1/4 tsp freshly cracked pepper
1 tbsp finely minced onion
1 food processor
What you do:
Firstly, assemble your ingredients. Note that I'm using a mini-food processor. If you make a lot of this at a time then a regular f-p will work but otherwise try to find a mini one. They're cheap.
Put everything EXCEPT the minced onion into the food-pro.
Process till it has a whipped look/consistency. Should take more than 30 seconds.
Mix in the minced onion, and then artfully arrange it for taking purdy pictures!
Use it just like you would regular butter, no worries.
